I think there's well over a hundred ginkgos planted throughout my city, I almost feel like they're getting a bit overused. My street got a new tree row of ginkgos last year. The oldest individual around here was planted almost a hundred years ago. I've only seen females used (outside of botanic gardens) in Germany, at Invalidenpark in Berlin. I visited in october and didn't find the smell that bad, but maybe the fallen fruit hadn't fully "matured" yet.
