Giant Trees (Ficus) Tips (2)

Beautiful shady trees

How these trees survive in the urban environment, surrounded by steel, concrete, asphalt and car fumes day by day is amazing. But then the Ficus genus of trees and shrubs is known to be hardy. Here you can see several views that show just how hemmed in these beautiful trees are, they barely have place to put their root systems before they get paved over by the road. Cars pause beneath them as they wait for a chance to enter the stream of cars passing this point. You can get an idea of size when you see the people walking under them. The width is amazing.

Giant Trees in Cádiz City!

If you go to Cadiz city be sure to see the giant trees which can be found in the gardens along the coastal wall near to Playa la Caleta (the beach in the city centre).

It's not the height that makes them giants, but the width! They are obese! They also give off a strange sense of wisdom and intelligence (well at least to me). You almost think they'll become fluid at any moment than freeze again in an instant!

I've never felt like tree hugging until the moment I met the giant trees in Cádiz!
