If that was here, I'd say it's a "strangler fig" - a member of the ficus family.  A bird will poop a seed and then it grows and takes hold of whatever it's on.... like a fencepost, another tree or whatever.  If the leaves are similar to a ficus, that's it.  They are a real nuisance, and should be killed, before it kills the host tree, or before it sets more seeds.  See those aerial roots... just like a banyan tree, which is in the ficus family too.

Georgina - You are right - I checked and found out it is indeed a Strangler Fig - we also have banyan trees here - I love them!!!!!!!!!! They are so 'other worldly'!!!!
