Description

Sweet Gum Tree Seedlings is a Beautiful Colored Fall Foliage Tree 

The sweet gum tree, also sometimes known as the red-gum or star-leaved gum tree. In the wild, the tree can grow as high as 150 feet. It’s a deciduous tree with dark green palmate leaves that have pointed lobes. The lobes of a leaf usually number between five and seven. sweet gum zones include most of the continental U.S. except for portions of the northern Midwest and the most northern parts of New England. It is native to the warm climate of the Southeast and also grows in Mexico and Central America. The sweetgum can grow in various types of soil and range from sandy to moist. In premium conditions, it will likely increase somewhere between one to two feet each year. The fruits of the tree buried ball-shaped capsules that carry its seeds, reach maturity in fall, and stay on the tree during winter.

Sweet Gum Tree Seedlings attract a Variety of Birds to your Yard

It has a distinctive twig growth that has led people to describe the twigs as “wings.” The sweet gum is famous for a variety of reasons. Its beautiful colored leaves in the fall, typically yellow, red or even purple, can be quite bright and add much loveliness to the landscape. It’s also a great shade tree, and its hardwood is one of the most popular types of hardwood lumber in the U.S., next to oak. The fine-grained wood has impressive colored streaks in it, which can make it good lumber for furniture making and flooring, especially since it polishes well. Its timber is sometimes called satin walnut. The wood can also be pulped to make paper or used in basket making. The name sweet gum probably comes from the resin inside the gray bark which American pioneers used to scrape off and chew. Sometimes parts of the tree were used to make soaps and adhesives, though today it is mostly valued for its wood and its beauty. The tree is considered to have a “pyramidal” shape that gets rounded as the tree grows older, resulting in a sort of oval. There trees attract some different birds, including finches, sparrows, bobwhites, mourning doves and turkeys. Squirrels and chipmunks also like to eat its fruits and seeds, so it’s a good tree for attracting wildlife to your yard. One interesting fact about the tree is that its genus, which has six species in it, is primarily native to Asia. The first time the tree is mentioned in recorded North American history is a written description of a ceremony involving Cortez and Montezuma.
