The American Sycamore, or Platanus occidentalis, is a big deciduous tree that may grow to be 75 to 90 feet tall with a trunk . It is one among North America's biggest hardwood trees in terms of diameter. The tree has 3 to 5 lobed alternating leaves with a coarsely serrated border. The tree's bark has a mottled appearance due to the darker outer layers peeling away to reveal the lighter interior layers. The plant's most attractive feature is the whitened inner bark, which peels off in sections.
