Here are some pictures of banyans, trees with aerial roots that eventually become as thick as the main trunk. By this means, a single tree can spread to cover a vast area. In ancient times, there was supposed to be a single tree that covered a large enough area that it was possible to hide an entire army in it. It is a single tree of this kind that covers the whole of the Isle of Flies in the Upper Reach.
