Page contents
Sycamore Maple


A large maple native to central Europe, reaching western Europe and western Asia. Occasionally planted in North America as a landscaping plant or street tree, and established in the wild from the mid-Atlantic to New England, and in several other isolated populations.

In the UK, referred to only as "sycamore"; in the U.S. this name is reserved for the American sycamore and other trees of the Platanus genus.
