London Plane Tree Characteristics
London Plane Tree is a large exfoliating tree that is particularly tolerant to city pollution. They can often be found around London City and other European destinations. The main feature is the exfoliating bark. In fall, inconspicuous flowers produce fuzzy fruit balls that remain until winter. The fruit balls disperse into white tufts that carry seeds.
London Plane Tree can be vulnerable to some disease and pests. Diseases include sycamore anthracnose, cankerstrain, canker, leaf spot, and powdery mildew. Pests can include borers, scale, Japanese beetles, caterpillars, and mites.
