Moreton Bay Fig

Original banner to the blog, Ficus macrophylla, a tree with gravitas to spare, planted in the 1880s at Rancho Los Alamitos, Long Beach, California.

Oh, to have the land to accommodate such a giant! (Oh, to have a rancho…and a pony….and some chickens…)

    Spectacular. I’m in Sydney where these grow naturally. There’s a half dozen massive ones growing out the back of my place on some now vacant land. They’re a hive of activity with possums and fruit bats.
