Sycamore Tree (Plantus occidentalis)
Sycamore Tree: Plantus occidentalis, or the American sycamore tree, is a deciduous North American native species. It originated on the continent's east coast, stretching from southern Canada to northern Mexico.
The sycamore tree is a tall, emerald green specimen, prized by landscapers and gardeners for its abundant shade, dense crown, and graceful good looks.
The Sycamore Tree Is Good-Natured
It grows well in most continental USDA growing zones, equally able to tolerate icy winters and summer heat. Its easygoing nature can thrive in soil with high moisture content but is drought-tolerant.
It prefers a location that provides a combination of sun and shade. However, it can tolerate full sunshine if you keep the soil moist, especially during long and hot summer days.
As an eastern forest native species, the sycamore tree loves woody organic matter. Your tree would love for you to put some hardwood mulch around it, especially mixing in some organics when you first plant your tree.
Once you meet those two basic needs, your sycamore tree will establish roots and become self-sufficient faster than you can imagine.
The Stately, Grand Appearance of the Sycamore Tree
The sycamore tree is a grand, tall species that can grow up to one hundred feet and almost that wide at the crown. The crown is pleasantly shaped, rounded at the top, and usually slightly asymmetrical. The branches and leaves are dense, creating plenty of shade to relax on a hot day.
Sycamore tree has a sturdy trunk with nutty brown to dark gray bark near the base, often mottled with red tones. It develops scales around the base. The upper bark lightens to a lighter tone as the bark exfoliates and exposes a fresh, more delicate layer.
Sycamore tree leaves have three to five lobes, alternate on the stem, have slightly toothy edges, and are broad and oval-shaped. Their color is a bold green color. In the autumn, the leaves usually turn yellow or amber.
