This venerable Chinese Banyan (ficus microcarpa) stands outside the entrance to the Sai Ying Pun MTR station on Bonham Road.
It is distinctive in its height, which is easily eight to nine storeys tall, and its relatively slender form compared to typical Chinese Banyans, which have broad, expansive canopies. Nevertheless, the tree has excellent roots detailing and a beautifully dense foliage.
