Ginkgo-Biloba
Ginkgo Biloba; commonly known as Gingko or Gingko. This is also known as the Maidenhair tree which is a species of tree native to China. This is the last living species of the tree Ginkgoales which first appeared over 290 years ago. Because it’s the only surviving member of an ancient order of plants, it’s sometimes referred to as a living fossil. Fossils very similar to the living species belonging to the genus Ginkgo. The tree was cultivated early in human history and remains commonly planted. Ginkgo’s are large trees, normally reaching a height of 20-35 meter with some specimens in China being over 50 meters. The tree has an angular crown and long, somewhat erratic branches, and is usually deep rooted and resistant to wind and snow damage. Young trees are often tall and slender, and sparsely branched; the crown becomes broader as the tree ages. The leaves are unique among seed plants, being fan-shaped with veins radiating out into the leaf blade, sometimes bifurcating (splitting), but never anastomosing to form a network.[15] Two veins enter the leaf blade at the base and fork repeatedly in two; this is known as dichotomous venation. The leaves are usually 5–10 cm (2–4 in), but sometimes up to 15 cm (6 in) long.
 
While its leaves and seeds are often used in traditional Chinese medicine, modern research primarily focuses on ginkgo extract, which is made from the leaves.
