Strangler fig tree

There are the neatest trees! They germinate in the canopy on another tree then the branches grow down to the ground and surround the other tree until it's completely covered and dies. The roots are called "prop roots" and they run along the surface because there is very little top soil (something like 10cm of good soil).
