American Sweetgum – Liquidambar styraciflua

gold line

A large, fast-growing shade tree with fall colors of yellow, orange, red and purple. It is an important

hardwood for plywood and paper products. Its spiny fruit is a nuisance to foot traffic, so the tree is

best planted in open areas.

In Respectful Memory of Dr. Jeong Hyok Im
