Hawaiian Banyan Tree - Hilo City
The Banyan Tree, the National Tree of India, is a member of the fig family. They start out small, but before too long, especially in the tropics, it can put down multiple trunks and shade quite a bit of acerage. This Banyan Tree, along with many others, lined Banyan Drive on the approach to a few Hilo bayside hotels. They were planted the first half of the twentieth century by many notable celebrities of the time such as Babe Ruth, Cecil B. DeMille, Amelia Earhart, and many Hollywood stars of the era.
