‘Crescent’ the Sycamore
Why remarkable: Age, survivability
Description: Looked at from one side this old sycamore tree looks a lot like many of its species lined up along the James River west of the Huguenot Bridge. But from the other side, the observer sees that it is held up by the thinnest sliver of sapwood. Thus the name. Still living, still hoping tree hopes, still reproducing, and still growing.
