Banyan Tree.... one tree... so many roots!! by 


#“Older banyan trees are characterized by their aerial prop roots that grow into thick woody trunks which, with age, can become indistinguishable from the main trunk. Old trees can spread out laterally using these prop roots to cover a wide area.” (from Wikipedia)#

    What a fantastic tree! Great shot, my friend!

  • thanks trish… i had never heard or seen these til my daughter moved to Florida. the first banyan trees in the USA were in St. Augustine Florida… but now they are all over florida. This one was taken in Lake Worth, Florida, and are among some of the oldest in the state! thanks so much for your response! barb

    Wow, it looks like a home for many types of wild life if it were in a natural setting, like your framing.

  • thanks byron… posted this for a challenge… but i want one of these trees in my yard… i need a hiding place!!! i can imagine a kid having something like this and sitting in there, nice and cool, away from the sun… and others… reading a book or just lost in his own thoughts… thanks so much for your lovely comment~~~ thanks my brother!! b

    Truly one of natures marvels. I have seen some big ones… the largest was about 150 feet in circumfrance. Kids would play hide and seek in it. Pete

  • these trees were in Lake worth, down town right in front of a government building… there were about 4 this size… and it won’t be very much longer before they will be making one solid tree that goes all the way across the front of the building… thanks so much for your comment my friend… b
