Why are you reporting this puzzle?

I think this is a ficus macrophylla - aka as Moreton Bay Fig, Banyan Tree or Strangler Fig tree, and they are native to Australia. They can grow to 8o metres (200') and are found all down the coast of Queensland & into New South Wales.

There are also several growing in California - one being adjacent to the San Diego Natural History Museum that is 23mt ( 78feet) high and 37mt (123 feet) wide!! Another one is near the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, and the oldest is in Santa Barbara and it was planted in 1876 by a young girl who was thought to be given a seed by a sailor, and it's 176 feet across!

Hi Rob, I think that flying foxes (bats) love the seeds of these. This one is a beauty! Thanks and hugs, Janet

It sure is Floyd:))))Thanks!!

These are a different variety to the edible figs DrJean - I had one of those years ago! The fruit on these trees are dry & inedible to humans, but I think birds & animals eat them. Thanks!!

They sure are Dave - they're a great shade tree in park settings, like here! But...they need a LOT of room!!!! Thanks!!

LOL!!! I agree totally Barb - they are magnificent:)))) Thanks:))

They are amazing up close when they get big. There are big ones in Florida, too, I have photos of a few.

I agree with Gladstone, Robyn .... Not that's what's quite fig tree. It makes my fig tree look like a potted plant. I just came in from picking figs and thinking, "I can't believe I'm picking figs this early;" and hating the rest of the upcoming summer picking. But now that I see this gorgeous fig tree, I guess I won't complain. Thanks for sharing and the history lesson. -:))

Gladstone

Now that's a TREE!!!
thanks Rob.
