I love the colour of this plane tree that I found while walking through a residential part of Vancouver today. The plane tree is:
characterized by scaling bark; large, deciduous, usually palmately lobed leaves; and globose heads of flower and seed.
It was the scaling bark, peeling off the tree, leaving a smooth, dark bronze surface underneath that attracted me. What an amazing tree.
