I'm not at all familiar with Trees. I had already considered as I saw some sycamore trees being posted that came up on my home page. The photo taken is what we call out-in-the-boondox.
We had two young girls murdered in our small town and I think some people have become leery of everyone, or I would have pulled down the long drive. I took the photo by parking along the country road with my flashers on. I still was quite a distance from the tree.
The only reason I thought it was *not* a sycamore was because it had small leaves. In a neighbors yard, and lots of places elsewhere, I see our standard Indiana sycamore all over the place. They have *very large* leaves. But based on the other photos I've seen of some sycamores here, it certainly can not be ruled out, and certainly may be.
One thing I was considering too was the white bark is a definite give for a sycamore. And then the other is that Oaks often hold their leaves, even through winter.
A trip back out to the boondox will be a hopeful to-do in the near future.
And thanks so much for posting!
