Ficus macrophylla, commonly known as the Moreton Bay fig, is a large evergreen banyan tree native to eastern Australia. Its common name is derived from Moreton Bay in Australia.
Ficus macrophylla is widely used as a feature tree in public parks and gardens in warmer climates such as California, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Malta, northern New Zealand (Auckland), and Australia. Old specimens can reach tremendous size, and their aggressive root system renders them unsuitable for all but the largest private gardens.
