The deciduous Sweet Gum tree is a native of the warmer regions of the U.S. and one of the more valuable hardwood forest trees in the southeast. Its five-pointed, star-like leaves make it recognizable, along with dense, spiked fruit. Its flowers bloom between March and May and last until well in to autumn.


The medium-sized Sweet Gum reaches a mature height of 35-50 feet in domestication, but in the wild they soar up to 120 feet with a trunk width of 2 to 3 feet. These sturdy trees are a great focal point in parks, school yards, and other public grounds. An impressive giant with a life span of up to 400 years.

    Plant was well packaged and arrived in excellent shape. It will be spring before we know if it will thrive in the area where it is planted.
