This male Ginkgo, if precisely measured, would rank about 14th largest in Pennsylvania (as judged from pabigtrees.com).  Its trunk circumference was 13 feet 10 inches in 2019; its height was approximately 80 feet; its spread approximately 72 feet.  

 

This amazing species has exceptional resistance to weather, pests and pollution. Ginkgo was one of the few living things to survive in the blast zone of the atomic bomb that fell on Hiroshima August 6, 1945.
