Native to India and Malaysia, Ficus nitida is widely used as a street tree and as a formal hedge in Southern California. Grows at a moderate rate up to 40 ft. May be pruned at almost any time of year to size or shape desired.  Can be a very dense hedge.  Be wary of planting near sidewalks, streets, plumbing, or septic systems because of invasive roots, but root guards can help reduce problems, and they are less of a problem when hedge is kept smaller.  Low temperatures can damage the tree. Thrips can be a nuisance, but are easy to control.
