The Great Banyan Tree

By Gerard @presurfer
The Great Banyan Tree is a 250 year-old tree that covers about 14,500 square meters of land in the Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Botanical Garden near Calcutta, making it the widest tree in the world. From a distance, the tree has the appearance of a forest but what appear to be individual trees are actually aerial roots, around 2,800 of them.
