Gingko Heritage Tree

One of the oldest tree species on earth, Gingko trees were originally native to Washington but gone from the area by the 1700s. Issaquah is fortunate to have one that is over 115 years old, planted in the early 1900s by a former mayor and Washington legislator, Dr. W.E. Gibson. Saved by a group of high school students in 1970, it is now an Issaquah treasure.

East Fork of Issaquah Creek
