    It's interesting seeing the pink fruits in the previous posting. The two female trees I've seen this week are also very striking with their yellow fruits and yellow leaves.

    The tree you can see here is the female, and there is a smaller male tree behind it. I went to see this because it's listed in an unpublished Vancouver Heritage Tree Inventory (BC Society of Landscape Architects, 1984). I hadn't realized it was going to be a female tree. On Wallace St at 40th Avenue.

    Four days ago I went to see a Ginkgo in the same book on 20th west of Laurel, that was tall and nice enough,

    but the tree that excited us was this private tree on 19th east of Laurel, still with all its leaves, but with so many fruits on the ground that we had trouble walking under the tree.

    There's a big one in a park in Orléans. Old specimens like this one develop "chi-chis", it's as if it was melting :

    I have one that I train as a bonsai :

    ... and I was surprised to see that there are quite a few cultivars, like this other one in my "collection", Ginkgo biloba 'Saratoga', thinner leaves, and growing upright :

    NB :
    "Sumo wrestlers with sekitori status are required on certain occasions, such as during a honbasho, to wear their hair in a more elaborate form of topknot called an ōichō, where the end of the topknot is splayed out to form a semicircle, resembling a ginkgo leaf." (Wikipedia)

    Do you guys have a tip on making the ginkgo branch out more?
    because mine seems to not respond to pinching.

    Not really. Pinching doesn't seem to be very efficient.
    I think that growing them in a big container with fertilizer and using the "clip and grow" method might be more efficient.
