Are you able to identify what type of tree this is?
I have seen others that are similar but are more of a skin tone instead of white. Could they be from the same family?
Without seeing the rest of the tree, it’s a bit hard to tell, but I suspect that it is a London Plane tree (Platanus x acerifolia). This site has a good description of these trees, which you can compare to what you saw: Botany of Plane Trees
Another option would be the native Sycamore tree (Platanus occidentalis), which you can read about here.
And yes, as the names would indicate, they are related!
