I bought my house in FC so i did not get to talk to owner and his choice of landscape plantings. There are 5 of these trees in the front corners of my yard. About 15 feet high for the tallest one at most and skinny. No fruit or flowers that i have seen in the two years we have been here.

    Here is an interesting little article on the Ginkgo I stumbled upon while looking for confirmation on your photos. News to me: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/05/ginko-trees-that-smell-li_n_309498.html

    I think they are ginkgo trees. They are usually male for landscaping purpose. They will become beautiful trees.

    Thank you so much for the info. Going to look it up to see if it is something I want to keep or replace.

    This is a Gingko biloba tree. This tree, also called the “dinosaur tree” is the last of its kind. It is from China and is said to have existed in the dinosaur age and has not changed since. One way to distinguish these trees is by noticing their “fan-shaped” leaves. Usually the younger trees have a gawky like appearance. They have beautiful golden yellow fall foliage.

    Beautiful tree. Turns bright yellow in the fall. Most leaves fall in a few days. If you time it right you can go out and shake the tree(assuming it’s not too big) and have almost all the leaves fall at once….
