sweet gum Sweet Gum TreeLatin Name: Liquidambar styraciflua

Description: The Sweetgum is a large tree, growing up to 100 feet tall. It has a straight trunk, up to three feet wide. Sweetgums are aromatic, meaning they have a pleasant smell. You can crush a leaf to get a good sense of this. Sweetgum fruits, called “gumballs” by children, are often dropped in huge quantities. Up to 50 seeds can be in one fruit.
