Colorful Improvement on the Sycamore
Why Exclamation London Planetrees?
Also known as Morton’s Circle, the Exclamation London Planetree is the go-to for landscapers all over the nation because it has an upright, pyramidal growth habit and multiple seasons of color. Plus, it's an improved version of the classic Sycamore since it can have more color variation and doesn't drop the same pesky seed pods associated with neighborhood Sycamore Trees.
And it has visual interest well into winter. The London's smooth gray-brown bark peels away to reveal shades of white, gray and green underneath. The bark has beautiful marbled colors that stand out in the barren winter landscape. And with a growth rate of about 3 feet per year, Exclamation London Planetrees quickly establish themselves as mature shade trees. They’ll create cool areas in your yard and shade your home to cut down on air bills during summer.

Exclamation London Planetree
I was very concerned at first that it was dying, but I have it planted and it is doing well, with leaves and strength! So far so good!!
The trees looked health when received and were planted right away. It's only been about a week but they are looking good.
Hoping they make it!
Love Fast Growing Trees.com...... These new trees look healthy but brown at points. Could be we're just heading toward Fall. Keeping our fingers crossed but won't know until Spring. I think they will be fine. Thanks
I ordered five London Plane trees.
They arrived on time. I planted them. I water them five gallons a day when it does not rain and they are doing very well. I am impressed.
I am thrilled to report that my tree is thriving - I am looking forward to the shade it will provide my home from late afternoon sun and resultant heat. I chose this tree for two reasons more than it’s speedy growth: my father, who died 3 years ago, loved this tree (it’s his memory tree) and I visited London two years ago and saw them, so it’s also a memory for me.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Start by choosing a place in your yard that gets plenty of sun. Also, the Exclamation London thrives with moisture, but needs well-drained soil.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate the Exclamation London's root ball, place the tree and then backfill the soil. Water to settle the roots for best results. Finally, add mulch around the base of the tree for better water retention, but avoid getting too close to the trunk.
2. Watering: During the first few weeks, water your Exclamation once or twice a week for 45 minutes. After that, stick to only watering during dry spells using the same method of deeply watering for 45 minutes or using drip irrigation for 90 minutes.
3. Fertilizing: You don’t need to fertilize your tree, but if you do, add a slow-release formula around the base of the tree.
4. Pruning: You can prune your tree in the winter for shaping purposes, if desired. Removing the lower branches will make it easier for shade to flourish in the summer.
