Listen to the wind rustling in the leaves overhead and feel the smooth bark of the Planetree, a relative of the more familiar Sycamore Tree that grows all over the eastern U.S. In no time you’ll feel refreshed and recharged and ready to tackle another busy day!
These patio chairs aren’t churned out in a factory in China. Our Bloodgood London Planetree Living Tree Chairs are crafted by our skilled growers in the great outdoors right here in the USA. Each tree is gently guided in its growth from a very young age to take its ultimate form. The durable, long-lived London Planetree is especially well suited to this fascinating collaboration between Man and Nature. It’s a tough, vigorous hybrid tree derived from the American Sycamore and the Oriental Planetree and adapts to many growing conditions. The London Plane was first grown in—you guessed it—London, over 350 years ago.
How to use Sycamore Living Tree Chair (Bloodgood London Planetree) in the landscape?
The London Planetree is especially popular in European cities. As you munch on your croissant on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, this is the tree you’ll see lining the famous avenue. Planetrees are often pollarded in Europe, which is a severe sort of pruning—but we doubt you’ll see a London Planetree Living Chair Tree overseas. That is a Bower & Branch™ exclusive!
Hardiness Zone: 4-8
How To Plant Sycamore Living Tree Chair (Bloodgood London Planetree)
Your Bloodgood London Planetree Living Tree Chair will prefer a site that receives all-day sun. It isn’t fussy about the type of soil it grows in. Upon planting, the Bloodgood London Planetree Living Tree Chair will be able to hold at least 250 pounds, and after one year in your landscape, there are no weight restrictions. A Bower & Branch™ Tree Chair Saddle is included to make your Living Tree Chair experience fully satisfying.
How To Water
Water twice weekly for the first 3-5 weeks; then water weekly for the remainder of the year until winter. When you water, water slowly and thoroughly. Watering needs may be altered due to extreme weather conditions.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant Food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant Food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. If planting in the fall, use Elements fertilizer while planting and start your regular annual fertilizing the following fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established as it gives your tree the nutrients it needs to produce lush new growth for the following spring.
How To Prune
Your Bloodgood London Planetree Living Tree Chair can be planted in smaller spaces when "pollarding' is applied. Pollarding should take place in early spring, pruning aggressively to keep your tree much smaller than it would naturally grow. Sycamore respond very well to pollarding, controlling the size easily and creating a very attractive smaller tree. Pollarding is even more useful for the Living Tree Chair.

How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
