" Gi-tuohan sa kadaghanan nga ang mga ingkanto magpuyo sa dagko na kahoy ilabi na sa Balete." - Encyclopedia of Philippine Folk Beliefs and Customs Vol 1 by Fr. Francisco Demetrio SJ (translation: It is commonly believed that Tree Spirits dwell in large trees, especially the Banyan tree.) I grew up on a small subdivision in a valley guarded by huge Banyan tree beside a small river. As a kid, I played a lot in the river under that tree--a lot of superstition surrounded the old Banyan tree including nightly hauntings and vehicles strangely halting if they don't sound before crossing the small bridge over the river at night. It is said to be a hospital for spirits. I was never aftaid of the tree, I always felt at home near it.
