Ginkgo trees are very slow-growing, which makes the 65-ft tall one in front of Wilhelmina Currie’s home at 943 Ponderosa Place even more spectacular. The trunk of this ginkgo has a 5.6-ft girth that supports a crown 36-ft in diameter. She loves the leaves, which look like dinosaur footprints and turn buttery yellow in the fall.
