The Banyan Tree at Fort Myers

A Banyan tree is a fig which has the ability to spread out laterally from the original by using aerial prop roots.

Old trees can cover a very large area. The largest are found in Kolkata in India.

The tree at Fort Myers Florida was planted by Thomas Alva Edison in 1925. It covers 400 feet and is the third largest in the world.

It is also known from the story of Robinson Crusoe, who in the novel by Daniel Defoe builds his home in a Banyan tree.
