This fast-growing tree is found mainly in monsoon and rainforests, that can reach a height of up to 100’. It is resistant to drought and mild frost. It produces propagating roots which grow downwards as aerial roots on the branches that grow downward. Once these roots reach the ground, they take root and become woody trunks to support the wide canopy branches.
