Ginkgo Trees of Massie Road

Now is the time to go see the allee of ginkgoes on Massie Road in Richmond’s Windsor Farms neighborhood. We were first made aware of the incredible autumn show these trees put on by the book The Remarkable Trees of Virginia by Nancy Ross Hugo and Jeff Kirwan, with photography by Robert Llewellyn (who took the picture that accompanies this entry).

“The trees along Richmond’s Massie Road,” they write, “are much younger [than a gingko on the UVA campus] — the oldest of them were probably planted in the 1950s — but they illustrate how impressive a street tree the ginkgo can be — especially when lit with yellow leaves.”

Check our map below for where to find this street of gorgeous ginkgoes putting on their fall clothes. And if you love trees, you simply must own The Remarkable Trees of Virginia.
