Biographical or Historical Data:
Sycamore bark is thin and exfoliates in plates. The trunk has a characteristically camouflage look. Branches and upper trunk are creamy white, and stand out in the winter landscape. Seed heads form dangling round balls which are often held on the tree throughout the winter. Fast growing and long-lived, it reaches largest size along streams and bottomlands, and can be a behemoth among Indiana trees.
