Triple platanus tree canopy at Shinjuku gyoen


These three Platanus trees form one giant canopy. I like how each one is unbalanced, but together over the decades they have created a single round form. With older trees, you can see the effects of time and cooperation.

Camo tree adds graphic flair to street

I love this camo trunk tree, and the graphic flair of its trunk, branches and leaves. It’s almost unreal.

Its Latin name is Platanus, and it’s sometimes called American sycamore. A hybrid called London Plane is popular in many global cities, but this camo-trunked type is my favorite.
