Arizona Sycamore - Platanus wrightii
Smaller than other sycamores, this species can reach 70 feet in height. Adapted to dry conditions, Arizona Sycamore typically grows near water courses in middle to high southwestern habitats from New Mexico to Arizona. It is found at elevations of more than 6,500 feet. The trunk is often divided, and the bark tends to flake. Young trees have greenish bark and a white inner bark. The leaves are deeply divided, mildly scented, light green above and hairy on the underside. The marble-sized fruits are fuzzy and arranged in a line.
