The American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) is an easily distinguished tree by its tendency to mottled bark that flakes off in great chunks. This is due to the growing trunk stretching and splitting its bark that lacks elasticity. Sycamores can reach up to 98-130 feet high with diameters between 4.9 and 6.6 feet. The tree’s fruit is a small, woody ball that ripens in October and persists through winter.
