The Great Banyan Tree -Greatest of all Banyan tree..

Monday, March 20, 2006


Today I went to Botanical Garden (Shibpur, Calcutta) with my friends to see great banyan tree, you might be wondering what is so great about this tree.... well it is so old — and so huge. you just can't imagine, it is just like forest of single tree...here is some fact from it's file


The Great Banyan tree draws more visitors to the garden than its collection of exotic plants from five continents, The plant houses of the special gardens of Bamboos, Palms, Succulents, etc, Botanically known as Ficus benghalensis L, and belonging to the family Moraceae, the tree is a native of India the fruit is like small fig but is not edible and is red when ripe.

This tree is over 250 years old and in spread it is the largest known in India, perhaps in Asia. There is no clear history of the tree as to the time of planting etc, but it is mentioned in some travel books of the nineteenth century. It was damaged by two great cyclones of 1884 and 1886, when some of its main branches were broken exposing it to the attack of a hard fungus. With its large number of aerial roots which grow from the branches and run vertically to the ground and look like so many trunks, The Great Banyan looks more like a forest than an individual tree. Intrestingly enough the tree now lives in perfect vigour without its main trunk, which decayed and had to be removed in 1925, the circumference of the original trunkat 1.7 m from the ground was 15.7 m, the area occupied by the tree is about 14478.44 sqm. The present crown of the tree has a circumference of 450 m and the highest branch rises to 24.5 m, it has at present 2880 aerial roots reaching down to the ground.

The info was written on 21.02.2005 n' i got it from sign board of botanical garden.
