Fun Fact about the Sycamore tree
The wood of sycamore was commonly used to make kitchen items and toys, and was also the main choice for Welsh love spoons - traditional carved gifts. In times past, a young man would carve the spoon for his love and, if she accepted it, they could begin to court. Today, these spoons are often given as wedding presents. The symbols on love spoons convey different messages, for example, a horseshoe represents luck, a cross is for faith and a dragon offers protection.
Sycamore trees make handsome shade trees for large landscapes. The most striking feature of the tree is the bark that has a camouflage pattern comprised of grey-brown outer bark that peels off in patches to reveal the light grey or white wood beneath.
