What type of tree is this?

(Question)

 

 

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?

 

(Answer)

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!
