Park City has a collection of a dozen excellent Ficus (2 each in the East Shoppes and Fountain Shoppes corridors; 4 each in the South and Kohl’s corridors). This fig is native to Asia and Australia and one of the most common and tolerant indoor trees. Each Park City specimen is 7-10 feet tall and well maintained.

 

This amazing species has been documented to effectively remove gaseous formaldehyde and other harmful pollutants from indoor air.
