January 2 - The Sycamore Tree - Platanus occidentalis

The Sycamore Tree

The winter Sycamore tree can be identified by the seed balls that hang from the bare branches as well as the splotched tan/brown/cream colored bark.

This beautiful Sycamore tree lives at the Asheville Botanical Gardens.  There is a meadow there called Sycamore meadow.  The moon tree lives in that meadow.  www.ashevillebotanicalgardens.org
