The two ginkgos to the west of the library are some of the oldest ginkgos in the area and they have been designated as Heritage Trees by the city of Portland.
When Reed was originally founded, the library entrance faced to the west and the main walkway to Eliot Hall passed between these two trees. Unfortunately, that created a problem as both of the trees that were planted turned out to be females. Female ginkgos produce abundant fruit that drops to the ground and covers sidewalks with a smelly pulp in the fall. Not surprisingly, the renovation of the library in the 1980's moved the entrance to the north.
