Seeing the forest for the trees

The Curtain Fig Tree (strangler fig species Fichus virens), just outside the small township of Yungaburra on the Atherton Tableland near Cairns (in north Queensland, Australia) has been a tourist attraction for many generations.

It might seem strange to travel some distance to view one tree but many people appreciate natural beauty.

Just outside San Francisco is Muir Woods, another attraction, which is a tree-lovers paradise.
