A Remarkable American sycamore

Tree Information
Common Name: American sycamore
Scientific name: Platanus occidentalis
Category: Champion (big) tree
Notes: Several decades ago this tree was certified as the largest known tree of its species in Virginia. My husband's 100 year old grandmother takes tremendous pride in this tree in her backyard. I share her passion for that tree in part because my husband and I happened to meet under that tree six years ago.
