    You can't imagine how it looks like when you are in front of this tree.

  • What an amazingly beautiful tree!  Could you know its age? Thank you for sharing!

    • Hi, Helen.

      By summer 2011 this Ficus Benjamin was the largest tree in the world. It covered about 1500 m2 of floor space. Unfortunately, part of the tree has since died and had to be disposed of. I don't know how much is left of the tree.

  • Oho , Sehr Good !...Congratulations ...
