    Re: Tree question

    if you are talking about the NE corner, it looks like a sycamore to me.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: Tree question

    It is definitely a sycamore. I don't even mind getting stopped at that red light since can admire that big old tree.

    There are a lot of them on campus, esp along the old Dinkey line...but that one is much bigger.

    Re: Tree question

    Are sycamores the trees with leaves the size of dinner plates?


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Tree question

    You can buy seedlings of the sycomores found on campus. Don't have the link offhand but I looked into it a while back. There are rather pricey though.
