  London Plane-Tree at Gibbons, Cambridge, and Southwood, June 1, 2003
Gibbons drive is lined by stately London Plane-Trees (Platanus x acerifolia) frequently planted in cities because it is able to withstand urban conditions. A cultivated hybrid species, the London Plane-Tree is bred to contain traits common to the native American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) and the introduced Oriental Plane-Tree (Platanus orientalis). Easily distinguished from other broadleaf trees by the mottled bark on its trunk and the shape of its leaf.

This specimen is located at the intersection of Gibbons, Cambridge, and Southwood. The photograph was taken on June 1, 2003, when the tree was pretty well leafed out.
