If you love exfoliating bark on large trees you must have this tree. Pruned up 15 - 20 feet, it is a stunner. Beautiful dappled shade. But take note: this tree needs a good deal of space. Also it can drop a good deal of exfoliated bark, the leaves are large and difficult to rake and they really have no fall color to speak of. In drought years it can lose its leaves during summer. Finally, something nobody will tell you: June Bugs love this tree. Use Bayer Systemic Protect and Feed in spring to keep them at bay. I've learned how to keep this tree happy and to me it is well worth it. Nothing like a Plane Tree trunk lit by the morning or evening sun!
