The Arizona Sycamore is a native tree to the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. It's often found along streams and rivers, playing an important role in riparian ecosystems.

One of the most striking features of the Arizona Sycamore is its bark. The outer bark peels away in irregular patches, revealing a smooth, creamy white to olive-green inner bark. This characteristic gives the tree a distinct and attractive appearance, particularly in the winter months when the leaves have fallen.

The leaves of the Arizona Sycamore are another distinctive feature. They are large, with a broad, lobed shape, and a vibrant green color. In the fall, the leaves turn a golden yellow, adding seasonal interest to the landscape.

Arizona Sycamores are large and stately trees, valued for their shade and ornamental qualities. They are often used in large landscape areas, parks, and along streets. Their size and spreading canopy make them a good choice for spacious areas where they can grow to their full potential.

This tree prefers well-drained soils but is adaptable to various soil conditions. It requires regular watering, especially in dryer climates, and can tolerate occasional flooding, making it well-suited for planting near water sources.

Overall, the Arizona Sycamore is appreciated for its majestic size, unique bark, and broad, shade-providing canopy. Its adaptability to different environmental conditions and its role in natural ecosystems make it a valuable addition to landscapes in its native range.
