Native to India, Banyan trees grow all through South Asia. These large trees can grow to 656 feet in diameter and 98 feet in height. Banyan trees grow figs and produce flowers, which attract monkeys, birds, and wasps. They also produce rubber and a milky sap used for a variety of products.
One of the largest Banyon trees was found in Calcutta, India. It reached over 80 feet tall with a 420 meter canopy. Banyon trees require a high amount of moisture and can be easily damaged by frost.
Fun Fact: As the Banyon tree grows, its aerial roots hang down, creating the illusion that these trees have several trunks.
