  1. The second image, of the raised roots is really cool. What kind of tree is that?

    • It is a strangler fig. It actually starts life as a seed dropped in the canopy of a host tree by a bird.Over time the roots extend down to the ground and as it grows entwines the host tree and eventually over many years “strangles” (hence the name) its host. The host gradually rots away and the strangler is then a tree in its own right but is hollow through the centre. You can climb inside them and look right up to their canopy

  2. How beautiful!
    Happy Tree Tuesday! 🙂

  3. Something about the Ghost gums…… I always get an urge to rub my hands up and down that lovely smooth trunk!!
