Platanus occidentalis

The American Sycamore tree is one of the most stately shade trees found in the northeast. Large, twisting/bulbous trunks can reach several feet in diameter and the branches are covered in white and light green bark that show off in the winter after the leaves drop. 

Be sure the area you are planting in has room for these giants to grow as they can reach 75-100 feet although most domesticated specimens top out at 35-50 feet tall. Because of the size of this tree, moisture is essential for their growth and they prefer sandy loams or silty clays to retain moisture at the roots.

Arrives to you in a 2 gallon pot, about 4-6’ tall.

*Please note: Our native plants are field-grown and untreated with pesticides or fertilizers (how it should be!) Because of this, some varieties may show spots, browning or holes in the foliage during the fall months. Our plants have been organically treated if needed and are healthy and strong.
