I found this in Dominican Republic. I wanted to bring it home for my back yard.

I find the bark of sycamore to be one of the most interesting tree barks. Aside from the fact a lot of barks on trees change a lot with age, especially extreme age.  ;D

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

I looked at that tree and knew it was one of God's works of art.

The different color of the bark: from the older stuff still holding fast on the trunk, to the exfoliated parts revealing inner bark, to what must almost be cambium green, really makes it stand out and demand a good look when you come across it on a stroll in the bush or roadside or yard.  ;)
