An American sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) Moon Tree was planted at the Forestry Commission Nursery in Waynesboro, Mississippi, probably around 1976. The Forest Commission has since shut down all the nurseries, but still owns the property. The tree has sustained some damage but appears to be fairly healthy, as of 2019.

Pictures at upper left and below show the tree in November 2019. Picture at upper right shows the tree in October, 2013.
