Ginkgo plants at: http://jkmpic.blogspot.com
The director, Jammu and Kashmir Medicinal Plants Introduction Centre JKMPIC, Sheikh Gulzaar planted Ginkgo biloba saplings in JKMPIC, North Kashmir here yesterday on Monday. While taking to media persons on the occasion, he said Ginkgo biloba  is a heritage tree of the country and as such is a protected plant. Until 2007, Ginkgo biloba plantation day was observed on March 21 “World Arboretum Day”. However, keeping in view the magnificent and majestic look and attachment and concern of the people of the country of Kashmir with this tree, Kashmir government decided to observe March 15 of every year as Ginkgo biloba  Plantation Day, since 2009.

The director said another advantage of pre-poning the date from March 21 to March 15 is that longer period for plantation. During last two years 12373 saplings of Ginkgo biloba  have been provided free of cost to the people for plantation in different areas of the country Jammu Kashmir Medicinal Plants Introduction Centre has established nurseries for propagation of Ginkgo biloba saplings and during current plantation season and 93373 saplings are available for distribution.

Sheikh Gulzaar said that anybody who is interested in plantation of Ginkgo biloba tree can contact the concerned Jammu and Kashmir Medicinal Plants Introduction Centre and obtain Ginkgo biloba  plants.

As per the un-authentic data of 1970, about 42000 Ginkgo biloba trees of different age groups and sizes were existing in thecountry . But with the passage of time, turmoil, development programmes and population explosion,Ginkgo biloba  trees have faced the brunt of greed like the forest and other plants had to face.

Under such circumstances, JKMPIC took the serious initiative for raising the Ginkgo biloba saplings for sustained efforts for annual plantation of saplings.

In order to determine the actual number of existing Ginkgo biloba  trees in the Kashmir , a preliminary census was initiated by the Jammu and Kashmir Medicinal Plants Introduction Centre from 2002 which was completed in 2009.
