Kauai Scenes--Tree Arch Driveway

This is a recent photo of driveway to a countryside home just outside of Kalaheo, Kauai, Hawaii.  A 3 bedroom home on 37 acres is reached via this driveway.  What a peaceful welcome home scene and it's even for sale!

The tree is a Banyan tree and it's all one tree.  New trunks of the same tree are formed where the dangling trailers take root in the ground.

Richard,

That certainly is an interesting entrance to the home. Actually, pretty peaceful looking.

Hi Ann.  Now that most cell phones have a camera, we can capture such things when we see them.

Hi Debra, Ann H. & Ann A.,

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. 

Ann Allen--your family has been to Hawaii then?  There is one banyan tree on Maui that takes up an entire city block, was it that one?

They certainly are a unique tree.

I can't tell for sure but I suspect it's Ficus bengalensis. Our banyan trees here are Ficus macrophylla. The strangler figs (banyans) are some of my favorite trees because of their aerial roots and their very photogenic surface roots:

Beautiful trees to welcome you home. I have heard mush about these trees..they are fig trees right? From what I know they are sacred in India symbolizing eternal life, while in others they are dwellings for the supernaturals. Well, those are folk tales.

We call them Banyan trees here.  I wasn't aware of the fig connection until Will and Russell mentioned it herein.  I must do a Google search and see what I find.
