Ginkgo biloba / イチョウ科イチョウ属 / 日本

Tree watching the earth from ancient times
Ginkgoaceous plants prospered from the Mesozoic to the Cenozoic and fossils were excavated in Japan and the world, but they are almost extinct in the Ice Age and are the only extant species. Because it is resistant to fire, it is regenerated even if the trunk burns, it is resistant to pollution such as air pollution, and it is strong against pests, so it is the tree planted most in Japan as a street tree. Because the material is dense and beautiful as a whole, easy to process, it is also used for cutting materials such as chopping boards, engraved materials such as wood fish, plasterboard for clothes, go board, shogi board.
