The Sycamore Fig is a deciduous tree that is found in the dry and subtropical areas of Africa.
It has broad, palmate leaves and a dense, rounded canopy. The bark is smooth and grey, and the fruit is a fig that is green when immature and turns brown when ripe.
Ficus sycomorus is tolerant of drought and poor soil conditions, making it an ideal candidate for reforestation in arid areas. It is also a valuable source of food and shelter for wildlife.
