Sycamore Bark

The American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) is a splendid tree with a curious habit of shedding its bark in huge chunks. The result on a mature tree is often a very smooth surface mottled all over with decorative patterns. These trees are in the Smithfield East End Cemetery in Squirrel Hill.
