Sycamore Tree

Sharing a photo of my Sycamore tree in the backyard. I was on the deck looking over the privacy fence right before sunset and noticed the top half of the sycamore looked striking against the sky. Or at least in my mind it did. So I snapped some photos just as two blackbirds were flying away.

Sycamores also go by the names buttonwood or buttonball trees. This comes from the 1-inch balls that hang from the tree all winter and fall to the ground in spring. I love bark on the tree. It has a camouflage pattern and peels off in patches to reveal the light gray or white wood beneath. Older trees often have solid, light gray trunks.

I will post more photos later of the entire tree.

Sycamore Tree

Did you know the Sycamore tree is the oldest species on earth? The leaves grow up to six inches long. And the tree has been known to grow to 175 feet tall. Mine is not there yet but it is the tallest tree in my yard. The birds love hiding in it. It provides tons of shade. And the bark is so unique. Enjoy your day!
