On plant Gingko Biloba



Hi. Welcome to GOY. I think you should be able to move it, but wait until early spring and reduce the growth at that time. Make sure the tree is stable after replanting so new roots are not disturbed by wind blow before they have made good growth. There is always an element of risk moving older trees but Ginkgo should be fairly safe. Good luck
