The gingko tree is a living fossil and as far as anybody knows, has no living relatives. It has survived for millions of years and has changed very little. The species has been around for more than 200 million years, making it the oldest species of tree that exists.
In Japan, the gingko is called hibaku, which means “something that has experienced a nuclear bomb”. The gingko is one of the trees that survived the blast of the Hiroshima bomb in 1945. The predictions were that nothing would grow for 75 years, and even though the trees faced an enormous amount of damage, they fully recovered. Because of this, they are known for being a symbol of endurance and vitality. And in China, its native land, it has long been a symbol of hope and peace.
