This tree in Barangay Quirino, Ma. Aurora is claimed to be the largest Banyan tree in Asia. Locally known as Balete tree, it is estimated to be about 600+ years old. The ground that its roots occupy is about 10 to 15 meters in diameter and it is possible for adult people to squeeze into the center of its root network. The tree is about 60 meters tall and, from one of the photos above, you can see that it dwarfs a truck parked beside it.
