Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatynus) is a member of the Maple family of trees.
- Sycamore leaves and catkins in spring
Although not a native to Britain it is a common species, naturalized in our woodlands.
- The first leaves of a sycamore seedling
- As seedlings grow, new leaves take the shape of the adult tree leaves
- It is common for hundreds or thousands of seedlings to sprout in spring
It’s no wonder this tree has been so successful at colonising much of Britain.
