The sandpaper fig (Ficus coronata) is an awesome tree in our catchment, it is great for soil stabilization along creekbanks and can handle the tidal nature of our creek. The Sandpaper fig produces these small figs that darken to a deep purple when ripe, the leaves have a bumpy sandpaper texture and can be used the same as sandpaper. All in all, this is a hardy and tolerant native tree that is a great grower in our community.
