London Plane-tree

#3 - London Plane-tree (Platanus x acerifolia)

This tough street tree, a hybrid of our native sycamore and the Eurasian species, was planted extensively in London to combat the coal-polluted air. It is an imposing tree, growing 70 to 100 feet high and 65 to 80 feet wide. The exfoliating cream to olive-colored bark stands out in all seasons.
