Sycamore Tree — Platanus occidentalis

 
 
The sycamore is a long-lived tree of ancient lineage. One of the oldest sycamore trees is thought to be at least 400 years old. This tree needs a lot of space to grow but rewards time and care with beautiful bark and deep shade. The sycamore is notoriously tolerant of pollution and salt, which is why it’s so often seen in cities. Sycamores grow into massive specimens. It is advised to keep this in mind when deciding where to plant them. They are very long-lived trees, so plant them where you want them forever. Many species of birds like to nest in sycamores. Squirrels are often seen climbing and sunning in the tops and higher limbs. Human families are also attracted by the cool shade and natural beauty afforded by the sycamore. The stately sycamore can become the focal point of a yard, and their mottled bark offers a gorgeous contrast to the typical grey trunks of companion trees.
