CVTS-L Landscaping Plant Guide: Princeton Sentry Gingko Biloba

ginkgo tree

Princeton Sentry Gingko Biloba

  • Deciduous tree
  • Fruitless cultivar
  • Narrow/columnar growth habit
  • Vibrant yellow fall leaf color

As arborists, we often talk about trees as investments, and the Princeton Sentry Gingko Biloba might be a good one for people with larger properties. Growing to approximately 40’ tall, the tall, slender Princeton Sentry is known primarily for two things: its distinct leaves and its lack of fruit. Every single leaf is a beautiful fall yellow with an interesting shape. Accordingly, it is well-suited to being a stand-alone tree where it can shine on its own. With no fruit, you can enjoy the shade of this hearty tree without the frustrating mess.
