The London plane (Platanus x hispanica) has hairy, globular fruits and very striking bark, which is relatively thin, grey, and peels off not unlike dandruff. The plane is a widely used in Europe to line streets. Its immunity to car exhaust makes it predestined to this role. It’s also a grand tree than can reach heights of up to 160 feet, with high crown that spreads out wide.

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
