I like this sycamore tree, simply because it is the biggest one of its kind in town and I always like to harvest its huge leaves for mulching my garden.
I even keep some of the pictures of it on my desktop background.

I wish I could take good photos. There's a sycamore near my house that has almost no heartwood left. It's not a round trunk, just a5' wide arc of living bark atop the exposed roots extending 15-20 feet into the air and supporting some limbs still. All the wood from the center of the 'trunk' has long since rotted away. Amazing to me that it still is alive.
