Outside our office on Alabama Avenue in Selma is a big, robust Ginkgo tree. We think it’s one of the most beautiful Ginkgo trees on earth, and people we point it out to usually agree with us.
Native to China, the Ginkgo is the world’s oldest species of tree. Wikipedia says it has been found in fossils dating back some 270 million years. Believe it or not, the tree is actually a living fossil with a lifespan of nearly 1,000 years.
The Ginkgo tree symbolizes values we at Boyd Financial Group believe in – strength, perseverance, tradition, resilience and longevity. No wonder we’ve adopted the leaf as our logo.
