People keep planting these cute little Ficus microcarpa "lollipops", and then wondering what to do with that monster tearing up their house foundation 10 years later!

I see so many Ficus species planted in the worst spots here also. Most do eventually become gigantic monster trees. This Ficus is native to the Congo region of Africa and luckily is in a good spot.
