Product Description

Zones: 6 to 8
Mature Height: over 100 feet
Mature Spread: 50-75 feet

A medium-sized to large deciduous hardwood tree that is also useful as an ornamental planting due to its brilliant red Fall foliage. Leaves are uniquely star-shaped and fairly large at 6-7 inches.  When grown to maturity out in the open the habit of the Sweet Gum tree is beautifully symmetrical and exhibits a cone-shaped crown that becomes more rounded with age - it can grow to be a giant. 50-75 ft. in width at maturity. Fast growth and a wide tolerance for differing conditions make it a good choice as a street tree, shade tree or as a windbreak tree. The Sweet Gum's beautiful red Fall colour works well with a green lawn in the background. (Fall colour can also be orange/scarlet/purple.) Sweet Gum is a favourite of yellow-bellied sapsuckers
