  plane tree
      n 1: any of several trees of the genus Platanus having thin pale
           bark that scales off in small plates and lobed leaves and
           ball-shaped heads of fruits [syn: plane tree, sycamore,
           platan]

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Plane tree
     Heb. 'armon (Gen. 30:37; Ezek. 31:8), rendered "chesnut" in the
     Authorized Version, but correctly "plane tree" in the Revised
     Version and the LXX. This tree is frequently found in Palestine,
     both on the coast and in the north. It usually sheds its outer
     bark, and hence its Hebrew name, which means "naked." (See CHESTNUT.)
