I live near a number of parks which have very large Sycamore trees. In winter these trees naturally shed their bark.

The bark tends to pile up at the bottom of the tree until, I assume, the park maintanance crew clears it up.

It seems like such a shame to let it go to waste. Does this bark have any particular uses? I guess using it as a light form of firewood might work.

Or perhaps it's better for the environment to just leave it where it is?

    It could be used as mulch in gardens to conserve moisture. – Fred May 26 '19 at 18:19
