Ginkgo's are the sole living link between ancient plants like ferns and more modern trees like conifers. The simple leaves and the conifer-like buds are an indication of this. Leaves from modern trees match those of fossils millions of years old. The gingko tree itself has a long life too, with reports of trees up to a few thousand years old.
