Gibbons drive is lined by stately London Plane-Trees (Platanus x acerifolia) frequently planted in cities because it is able to withstand urban conditions. A cultivated hybrid species, the London Plane-Tree is bred to contain traits common to the native American Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) and the introduced Oriental Plane-Tree (Platanus orientalis). Easily distinguished from other broadleaf trees by the mottled bark on its trunk and the shape of its leaf.
