Giant Banyan Tree in Tropical Florida: "The banyan tree is one of Florida's most curious trees, which sprouts even from a seed dropped on the limb of any other tree by birds.  The roots descend to the soil and in time kill the tree on which they grow.  Then as the branches develop, these throw down supports which take root as soon as they touch the ground, enlarge into trunks and extend branches in their turn to all sides of the parent tree.  Some of these trees grow to very large proportions."
