• Native tree for ecological plantings
• Makes a dense screen when pruned
• Resistant to urban pollution and poor soil
• Attractive mottled bark

Its handsome mottled bark and large leaves make it an asset in any location where there is room for it to grow and display its best features. It will grow 80 to 100 feet tall in time, so provide you American Sycamore with plenty of room. It can also be regularly hard-pruned to make an effective screen. This tree is a classic of small-town America and will look right at home on any larger property.
