Thanks for the warning, sternus1 - is it just climbing so you can cut it at the base (like ivy) or actually rooting into the tree?

Yup. They are horrible things when someone decides to plant them on big eucalypts or ficus. They bring down big limbs in storms and if you cut them at the base they die back, but have their roots in the tree and will send down new roots to the ground while sustaining themselves on the tree. Also, when they die back, they drop car sized masses out of the tree that can do real damage. All around bad idea to plant on an old big tree.

yeah, feral hylos are not good. This one is growing adjacent to a local park, must be ancient judging by the size of the epiphytes. Didn't see any flowers. I wonder if the fruit is any good.
