  • Every Tree Tells a Story: A Garden Grown Around a Sycamore Tree - Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
    stood on the property for much longer This photograph from our archives was taken in 1995 on the edge of Sydnor Lake before the conifer garden was planted This sycamore has seen a lot In its time here the landscape has evolved and this tree is a living reminder of the vast histories enclosed within our ever resilient trees This photograph for me represents the transformational power of gardening and also how much Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden has grown in its relatively short history of 30 years Compare this photo to one of the Streb Garden today The Streb Garden today The sycamore is easy to spot among the conifers because of its large canopy and its characteristic white crown which is most visible in the fall and winter The distinguishing feature of this tree is its mottled exfoliating bark which flakes off in irregular sheets leaving the surface with patterns like pieces of a puzzle In May the sycamore bears small flowers in dense heads and after fertilization the fruits grow into one inch balls They hang from stringy stalks which dangle from the tree all winter then fall apart in early spring to disperse the seeds The oldest known sycamores reach 400 years old We can only hope this one will still be standing in 2350 And don t forget our TREEstory Instagram contest continues until Nov 2 2014 Whether it s right here in the garden or in your neighborhood every tree tells its own story and we d love to see and read about your tree story in our contest The Every Tree Tells a Story exhibition at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden is on loan from The Cultural Landscape Foundation and has been made possible with generous support from presenting sponsor The Davey Tree Expert Company
