Beautiful,this trees are not natural,here introduced in portugal centurys ago,broath from america's,but it's not "invasive"does not spread like others introduced species,like acacias(ex.),here the leaves have not many organisms feading on them so they stay in the side roads for ages,it's the only thing not good,but it's a gorgeous site ,and the leaves are amazing in shapes and colours.
i have made today a spotting of a sycamore tree very similar,i'll load it to nigth
