Sweet Gum Tree produces fruit.
Fruit from this tree referred to as "gumballs." The gumballs hang off of the limbs, appearing as small ornaments. Brown in appearance, these fruits appear prickly. One fruit may contain up to 50 seeds. Squirrels, chipmunks, and birds often eat the seeds themselves. When planted in a yard, this tree can attract various types of wildlife. Do to the sweet gum tree's large size, it makes for a beautiful shade tree for the yard, and thus it is a favorite tree for using in landscape designs. The tree is also known for its fantastic fall foliage. The leaves on the tree can range from yellows and oranges to bright reds and deep purples. The colorful foliage stays on the trees until late in the fall season. The ornamental seed pods, called gumballs, remain on the tree throughout the winter and fall in the early spring. The gumballs contain black seeds that are eaten by squirrels and birds.
