"Galloway's Ginkgo" is the name that has been given to the largest ginkgo in the arboretum, which is found north of Kirkland Hall tucked into the corner of the E. Bronson Ingram College. The history of this tree is tied up with Bishop Charles Galloway, an important early figure in the history of the University. To learn more about the origin of this tree, visit its history page
This tree has a diameter of 100 cm (39 in.), height of 18 m (59 ft.), and crown spread of 23.5 m (77 ft.). Specimens of this size exhibit the very furrowed bark
that is typical of large ginkgoes. The fan-shaped leaves
have interesting veins that give the tree its common name "maidenhair tree".
