Jesse Hall Trail

Sycamore – Platanus occidentalis

gold line

As one of our Missouri native woodland giants, this tree grows 100 feet or more in height. Its

exfoliating bark on the upper trunk is distinctive and beautiful. Sycamore is susceptible to a

non-threatening disease that causes dropping of leaves and twigs after leaf emergence.
