Common to the eastern United States, the American Sycamore has distinctive shedding bark which reveals new bark underneath. This gives the trunk a characteristic mottled and vari-toned appearance. It’s large maple-like leaves are late to emerge in Spring and among the first to fall in Autumn. Its seeds are dispersed in late Winter when the tightly packed seed balls fall to the ground.
