Sycamore Tree

The sycamore tree (Platanus occidentalis) is a large, deciduous tree that is native to North America. It is known for its distinctive bark, which is mottled and peels off in flakes. Sycamore trees can grow up to 100 feet tall and 50 feet wide, and they live for an average of 200 years.

Sycamore trees are found in a variety of habitats, including floodplains, riparian areas, and forests. They are tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions, but they prefer moist, well-drained soil. Sycamore trees are also tolerant of drought and heat stress.

Sycamore trees are a valuable resource for both wildlife and humans. They provide food and shelter for a variety of animals, including birds, squirrels, and bats. The wood of the sycamore tree is strong and durable, and it is used for a variety of purposes, including furniture, flooring, and musical instruments.

Here are some tips for incorporating sycamore trees into your landscape:

  • Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil.
  • Space the trees 50-80 feet apart, depending on the desired mature size.
  • Water the trees regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize the trees in the spring and fall with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Prune the trees lightly in the late winter to remove any dead or diseased branches.

Enjoy the beauty and strength of the sycamore tree!

Additional tips:

  • Sycamore trees are susceptible to some pests and diseases, such as anthracnose and sycamore leaf blotch. It is important to inspect the tree regularly for signs of problems and to treat any problems promptly.
  • Sycamore trees can produce a lot of seeds in the fall, which can be messy. If you are planting a sycamore tree near a sidewalk or driveway, be prepared to clean up the fallen seeds regularly.
  • Sycamore trees are a popular choice for shade trees and windbreaks. They are also a good choice for landscaping, especially in areas where flooding is a concern.

Sycamore trees are a beautiful and versatile addition to any landscape. They provide shade, privacy, and food for wildlife. Sycamore trees are also a valuable resource for humans, providing us with strong and durable wood.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.

We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.

Note
Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
