Sycamore (binomial name Acer pseudoplatanus) is a species of maple native to central Europe, southwestern Asia, east France, Ukraine, northern Spain, northern Turkey, and the Caucasus.[1]

Sycamore trees can be found in the Forest of Dean.[2]


The sycamore makes a questing wand, eager for new experience and losing brilliance if engaged in mundane activities. It is a quirk of these handsome wands that they may combust if allowed to become ‘bored,’ and many witches and wizards, settling down into middle age, are disconcerted to find their trusty wand bursting into flame in their hand as they ask it, one more time, to fetch their slippers.[3]

As may be deduced, the sycamore’s ideal owner is curious, vital and adventurous, and when paired with such an owner, it demonstrates a capacity to learn and adapt that earns it a rightful place among the world’s most highly-prized wand woods.[3]
