Platanus occidentalis

Common name: Sycamore

Native plant

One of the fastest growing trees and the largest tree east of the Mississippi River. Three to four feet of growth per year is common for trees planted near a stream. The white and brown bark dominates the winter landscape along streams. Many leaves will fall in the summer if we have a drought. Anthracnose kills young leaves in the spring, but new leaves will be produced.
