2024 Bexley Landmark Trees!

Friday, May 10, 2024 at 12:57 pm


The Bexley Landmark Tree program aims to identify remarkable trees within our community as distinguished landmarks, emphasizing and conserving exceptional trees deserving of acknowledgment across the city. During the spring of 2024, residents nominated their favorite American Sycamores as candidates for Landmark Tree status. The American Sycamore is native to Ohio and one of the largest hardwood species in North American. Recognizable by its distinctive bark, unique zig-zag bud arrangement, and star-shaped leaves. Be cautious, though, not to confuse it with the non-native London Plane trees, distinguished by their olive-green bark patches, unlike the white bark of the American Sycamores.

From all the American Sycamore trees nominated this spring, the following were awarded Bexley Landmark Tree status.
