Platanus occidentalis

Like Maple, Sycamore is often lightly flecked with very small fine medullary rays when quarter cut. The sapwood of Sycamore is much more prominent than the heartwood of the tree, and it ranges in color from a creamy white to tan. Sycamore trees can grow to truly massive proportions for a deciduous tree. In 1770 George Washington noted in his journal a sycamore measuring 13.67 m (44 ft 10 in) in circumference at 91 cm (3 ft) from the ground.
