For John Venlet, the Banyan Tree in Lahaina.
Planted in 1873 by Sheriff Smith it was a mere 8′ tall. Now, the canopy spans close to an acre. When the seeds of a Banyan tree sprout they send out shoots which look like skinny branches, but they’re really roots. When the shoots reach the ground they take root and eventually grow into what appears to be a separate trunk of a new tree. But the entire matrix is really one tree. Large enough to provide cover for the local art fair. Amazing.
