"Sycamore tree? We have a sycamore tree? Like Zacchaeus climbed?" I was full of questions.
"I don't know about that, but it is a sycamore tree."
"Well, I'm gonna walk on over there and see if I can climb it."

The American sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) is what we have in North Carolina. According to Wikipedia, these trees can grow to over 100 feet tall and five to six feet in diameter. Here are a few more pics from the farm.
