Encroaching Tree

Ta Prohm, Angkor

A strangler fig is attacking the encroaching tree1. Other examples of encroachment can be seen at the third enclosure and the entrance.

1Sources disagree as to whether the large encroaching trees are kapok (per most guidebooks) or tetrameles (per the Archaeological Survey of India), and as to whether the stranglers are the strangler fig (per most guidebooks) or Gold Apple (per the ASI).
