    Banyans and Pando. Most fascinating! Thank you!

    I recommend following that Pando link. The 5.2 acres for a single banyan tree was already amazing.

      Thanks for the recommendation, Wendy, I’m glad I followed that link. Flora is amazing.

    Hi Daniel, apply for a scholarship to send you to India. The Calcutta Botanic gardens , has a famous tree.

    Aspen (Populus tremuloides) is rhizomatously clonal. Single genetic individuals can cover tens or hundreds of acres. The effect can be vivid in the fall, with different genotypes turning slightly different shades of yellow, orange, or red.

    Is this the same kind of “Banyan Tree” that grows on Front St. in Lahaina, Maui, or is that a different variety of Ficus?

    The Ficus in point in the Kolkata Botanic Gardens is worth a visit- a true champion tree. We have similar but smaller in the Durban Botanic Gardens named ‘the walking trees’ By the school children. Hopefully the one centenarian will qualify for national champion tree. If in Durban in S Africa come & visit & wander through the veil of these magnificent aerial roots.

    I found the info on the Banyan tree in Lahaina… apparently it is the same kind of Ficus:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banyan_tree_in_Lahaina
