The American sycamore is one of the largest hardwood trees in North America. It can grow up to 100 feet tall, with an equally majestic spread of 40 to 70 feet. This is a great shade tree for farms, acreages, or larger properties — just make sure to avoid planting it in smaller spaces!

  • Grows more than two feet per year
  • Produces maple-like leaves and one-inch seed balls
  • Sometimes develops multiple trunks
  • Is relatively drought tolerant
  • Should be planted at least 15 feet from your house or sidewalk
