I really like the look of the Ginkos but don't want the hassle of the fruit and the accompanying smell of rotting flesh. I thought I read that Ginkos come as male or females and that the males didn't fruit, is that the case?

Ginkgo trees can be male and female. Male trees do not fruit, and do not have any of those associated problems. We only sell male ginkgo trees- so, nothing to worry about!

can this smaller Ginkgo or any of the other smaller varieties be planted near a pool? By near I mean 12-18 ft away from a pool. I am sure there will be some pipes around the pool and was wondering if these trees are safe near pipes or 12 ft or more from a gunnite pool. Thanks.

Princeton Sentry Ginkgo trees will do just fine near a pool. This is because of their tolerance to frequently saturated areas, and, also Princeton Sentry is a seedless variety (it's male) which means it won't have the stinky fruit that female Ginkgo trees are known to drop. Since this tree only gets about 15 ft wide at full maturity, you can easily plant it about 12-18 ft away. The rule of thumb for shade trees and pools is to plant the tree so that the drip line of the canopy (the widest part of where the tree branches out) is away from the pool, about 10-15 ft. This tree will add beauty and interest to any pool area.

A lot of people want a male ginkgo tree, but I want a female ginkgo tree.
Does anyone want to sell a female ginkgo tree because of the smell?

Most of the newer varieties of Ginkgo are bred to be seedless males so they will not have the smell that you are referring to. It is hard to find a nursery that grows a straight species of ginkgo as they do not sell as well as the seedless varieties.
