Sycamore is a name which has been applied to several types of trees, but with somewhat similar leaf forms. The name derives from the ancient Greek συκόμορος (sūkomoros) meaning “fig-mulberry“. Species of trees known as sycamore: Acer pseudoplatanus, a species of maple native to central Europe and southwestern Asia.(Wikipedia)
The most striking feature of the sycamore is the bark that has a camouflage pattern comprised of gray-brown outer bark that peels off in patches to reveal the light gray or white wood beneath.
Throughout the ages the Sycamore has been a traditional symbol of strength, protection, reliability and clarity.
