Ginkgo trees are impressively resilient plants. Research shows that ginkgo trees have a long lifespan of more than a thousand years, as well as strong resistances to drought, diseases, pollution, and poor soil. In the past there have been several programs to plant ginkgo trees in an effort to improve air quality. Curious about the effectiveness of ginkgo trees in this respect, we have done research to see if they really do have a positive effect.
