Acer pseudoplatanus (Sycamore)

Acer pseudoplatanus (Sycamore) is a large, fast-growing deciduous tree.

It is a hardy tree, withstanding exposure and industrial pollution and tolerant to frost and salt-laden winds.

Its strong and adventitious roots make the tree excellent for mitigating soil erosion and it bears a minimum temperature of -20°C.

The sycamore thrives in calcareous soils, and requires a permanent and good water supply, but avoids wet soils.

It attracts birds and butterflies.

It is useful as windbreak and as an ornamental tree in urban and coastal locations.
