Banyan trees (Ficus benghalensis) are one of my favorites.  We are fortunate to have a small banyan forest here in Punta Gorda, Florida.  Planted in the 1920's and now surrounded by a nice condominium      complex ,these marvelous trees have survived several category 4 hurricanes, a few prolonged droughts
 and seasonal torrential rains with flooding.  Enjoy the photos, and if you get a chance, visit these noble trees.
