Frederick's 212 Year Old Ginko, Oldest and Largest in the U.S.

The first block of West 2nd street in Frederick is the home of the oldest and largest ginko tree in the U.S. It has it's own plaque from USDA certifying it. In 1983 it was 92 ft high. In fall, there is nothing more magnificent than this tree. It is incredible to look at any day in summer, but in fall it lights up the sky.
