There are many types of trees, some memorable and others not so, but, with the sweet gum tree you will definitely remember it. Sweet gum trees are tall
and quite narrow growers that can easily reach in excess of 60 feet (so make sure you have space) and they are particularly memorable because the foliage ranges greatly in colour
all the way to yellow and lime
. They also produce fruit
in the shape of small berries
that are affectionately called “gumballs”. It gets its name from its edible sweet gum sap that can be chewed like chewing gum (although we don’t recommend it). This sap is also widely used in Chinese medicine. Buy your sweet gum trees now and get FREE delivery anywhere in the UK.
