Strangler Fig Tree, Tropical North Queensland

Strangler Fig Tree, Tropical North Queensland

Strangler fig tree at Lake Eachamin Crater Lakes National Park on the Atherton Tablelands in tropical Far North Queensland. Fruit-eating birds eat the succulent fruits of strangler figs and the indigestible seeds are left to germinate high up in a tree. The young fig puts out long cable-like roots that descend down the host tree trunk to the forest floor. The roots then strangle and kill the host tree.
