We find precise asymptotic estimates for the number of planar maps and graphs with a condition on the minimum degree, and properties of random graphs from these classes. In particular we show that the size of the largest tree attached to the core of a random planar graph is of order $c \log(n)$ for an explicit constant $c$. These results provide new information on the structure of random planar graphs.
