Sycamore Fascines, Platanus Occidentalis are Hardy in Planting Zones 4-9 and are a Great Shade Producer
Sycamore Fascines are also known as Platanus Occidentalis. Hardy in planting zones 4-9. The growth rate at maturity can reach 75-100 feet tall and 75-100 feet wide. Sycamore will have a yellow (male) and red (female) bloom in April that will be insignificant. It will have a showy fruit and other winter interest. Makes a great shade tree and can help cut cooling cost if strategically planted to block the afternoon sun. Grow in drained, shady soil. This high maintenance tree will be tolerant of deer and air pollution, making it a good selection as a street tree. Fruiting balls will replace the blooms and melt away as fall develops and will disperse the seeds inside, frequently in downy tufts, and float away with the wind. When used as a lawn tree, it can be high maintenance with the leaves, bark, and balls to clean up. Native Americans knew this. For centuries, they used the trunks of sycamore trees in the construction of large canoes. Even in the contemporary world, this particular species still occupies a place of importance. A good number of flooring, cabinets, furniture, music boxes, barrels, veneer, and different violin parts are direct products of sycamore trees.
