Ginkgo plays an important role in traditional Chinese medicine, and the tree’s leaves and seeds have been used medicinally for thousands of years. The fan-shaped leaf is sort of iconic, as far as leaves go. (Okay, maybe iconic is a bit much, but it’s definitely recognizable!) These days, ginkgo is a popular holistic supplement, and it has a reputation for memory-related benefits. Some people also turn to it for relief from tinnitus, vertigo, PMS, and brain fog related to Lyme.

Ginkgo: The Tree That Time Forgot
Perhaps the world’s most distinctive tree, ginkgo has remained stubbornly unchanged for more than two hundred million years. A living link to the age of dinosaurs, it survived the great ice ages as a relic in China, but it earned its reprieve when people first found it useful about a thousand years ago. Today ginkgo is beloved for the elegance of its leaves, prized for its edible nuts, and revered for its longevity. This engaging book tells the rich and engaging story of a tree that people saved from extinction—a story that offers hope for other botanical biographies that are still being written. Inspired by the historic ginkgo that has thrived in London’s Kew Gardens since the 1760s, renowned botanist Peter Crane explores the history of the ginkgo from its mysterious origin through its proliferation, drastic decline, and ultimate resurgence. Crane also highlights the cultural and social significance of the ginkgo: its medicinal and nutritional uses, its power as a source of artistic and religious inspiration, and its importance as one of the world’s most popular street trees. Readers of this book will be drawn to the nearest ginkgo, where they can experience firsthand the timeless beauty of the oldest tree on Earth.
