Ginkgo tree

Zone 19083 | Anonymous added on December 5, 2016 | Answered

We have a very old beautiful Ginkgo tree on our property. However, because it is female, we deal with the horrible smell of the berries every fall/early winter. My husband would like to cut it down. Do you know of a place where we could donate this gorgeous tree? We have tried several local nurseries and all advise that we just cut it down and forget about it. I would rather not do that. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for your help.

You can use inhibitors that will sterilize a tree, preventing fruiting.
