Sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) planted at Dorman Hall on the Mississippi State University campus in Starkville, Mississippi in 1975. This tree was the source for the second generation Moon Tree seedlings sold by the American Forests' Historic Tree Nursery until the program was discontinued.

The Mississippi State sycamore had its top snapped off by hurricane Katrina on 29 August 2005, but is apparently still healthy.
