About Sycamore Trees at Nature Hills!
The impressive Sycamore tree (Platanus occidentalis), is also known as the American Sycamore, American Planetree, Planetree, Occidental Plane, and the Buttonwood!
Native to North America, Sycamores can grow massive! Growing to over 100 feet tall with a crown of 70 feet in diameter, they have the largest diameter of any American hardwood tree - in some cases achieving a girth of over 10 feet.
The symmetrical canopy provides ample shade in open spaces, creating a cool spot to sit through those hot summer days. A rapidly growing tree, a Sycamore takes a fraction of the time other shade trees require!
Sycamore trees thrive in a variety of environs throughout USDA planting zones 4 to 9. If you're looking for an easy-care, long-living shade tree, a Sycamore with the Nature Hills Nursery guarantee is an easy choice for you!
Eye-Catching, Easy-Care Sycamores
The spreading strong limbs at the top are dense, lush, and green, so this tree is perfect for adding exceptionally good shade to a spacious backyard or garden!
The leaves are huge! Able to get to six inches long and turn a lovely yellow in the fall. Songbirds and wildlife regularly make Sycamore trees their home because of the dense, warped, twisting branches.
And the branches!
Sycamores are well-known for their varied exfoliating bark colors that cover their mature trunks and older branches! Ranging from gray-green to whitewashed, the mottled trunk and stems become more and more unique with each passing year!
Sycamores are highly resistant to pollution, urban/city environments, and salty soils. They stand up well in inclement weather, especially strong winds!
In the autumn, Sycamores have round seedpods that add interest to the autumn and aren't spikey or difficult to clean up. Often, songbirds and wildlife make off with a few of them for you, and the others become unique winter decorations in your seasonal and dried wreaths and floral arrangements! These seedpods gave rise to the common name Buttonwood!
