    I feel very glad to see these unusual photographs of an area and trees I gained much joy from several years ago. My husband and I spent perhaps a week in these mountains, which are noted for their Apache and Chief Cochise history as well as for their relative isolation, wild life and relatively unusual trees. The altitude of this particular area gave us cold nights and an early frost while the days shone clear and bright, all of which was an ethereal contrast to the seemingly stark history directed, it appeared, mostly to Chief Cochise’s demise among this species of tree. The beauty found in this rugged area is a joyful gift to be treasured.

    Thanks Sheila. I absolutely agree about the area – it was one of the highlights of that trip.

    What is the urban/temp tolerance for this particular Platanus? As an L.Arch in the Northeast, we are having trouble here with Asian Long Horned Beetles which are beginning to move in on our P.acerfolia & P.occidentalis populations.
    Massed among the green like that, it’s truly magnificent.

    It is considered to be hardy to zone 6 by some sources, zone 7 in others. In places that have summer rain, it is considered a great street tree.

    Those are beautiful shots. I really like the composition in both cases.
