Banyan tree

Review Notes: Barh or Banyan, a remarkable tree of Haryana, India and tropical Africa sends down from its branches great numbers of shoots, which take root and become new trunks.

A single tree thus may spread over a large area and look like a small forest.

This tree is considered to be sacred in some places in India.

A specimen in the Calcutta botanical garden is more than 100 years old. It has a main trunk 13 feet (4 m) in diameter, 230 trunks as large as oak trees, and more than 3,000 smaller ones.

The largest banyan tree known is on the island of Sri Lanka. It has 350 large trunks and over 3,000 small ones. The banyan often grows to a height of over 21 meters and lives through many ages
