Has anyone here ever here of Ginkgo, or used it in a project? Not sure if it's spelled right. Some one asked if I had heard of anyone using it. What does the wood look like, how it works, is it soft or hard?
I have known of Ginkgo for years. It is unusual in many ways, one of which it that is that whole trees have different "sexes". The female tree emits a foul odor during the mating season. I wonder if there is a difference in the quality of wood from the two "sexes".
Thanks Drirot and Peter. Peter, I heard a Dr. talk about it, he said that wasn't so but did say that it helps with the blood circulation in the legs. I'll have to tell the fellow that asked me about it as he may get a log of it from a neighbor that wants to cut down a female tree. Might be able to get a board or two from him if he gets it.
I once did a Linux course with an ex Pfizer research chemist. He explained that Ginko was good for improving blood flow to the extremities (Pfizer knows a thing or too about that) and that the memory was assisted by better blood flow to the brain. He reckoned they'd had good responses in clinical trials.
