The Sweet Gum tree is one of the most attractive and easy to grow trees in North America that grows with relative ease in a range of different environments.

Scientifically known as Liquidambar styraciflua, the Sweet Gum Tree is well known for its beautiful shape that usually sees these trees grow to around 75 feet in a yard and more than 120 feet in the wild.

  The tree has a long, straight trunk that allows a conical shape to form with larger wide branches closer to the base of the trunk becoming skinnier at the top. One of the most impressive aspects of the Sweet Gum Tree is its display that includes bright green leaves that form into a star shape. Small flowers do form in late Spring and early Summer that are a bright yellow-green color with a touch of red skirting the edge of the petals. The arrival of Fall sees the display of the foliage become important with the bright green leaves turning a yellow-orange color.

There are several benefits for a property owner who is interested in providing a large amount of shade in their yard and fixing any nitrogen problems within their soil.

The Sweet Gum Tree has become known to many gardeners for the one-inch fruit that grows in the Summer and can linger until January. Growing the Sweet Gum Tree is made easier by this species ability to adapt to acidic, sandy, well-drained soils that make this an important part of many gardens.
