Ginkgo biloba 'Brickyard' originated from Stan Tyson as a seedling from a mixed seed lot collected in 1991 (He says “I have not determined the parent”). The current specimen grows on a staging area for an amphitheatre and is part of the Nauvoo Collection. (Nauvoo is a small city in Hancock County, Illinois in the United States, on the Mississippi River near Fort Madison) Our plant originated from a scion kindly provided by Mr. Charles Hunter.
