Sweet Gum Pods from the Southeastern United States grow on the Sweet Gum Tree. This tree has many uses such as commercial hardwood lumber, furniture, interior trim, railroad ties, cigar boxes, crates, flooring, barrels, woodenware, and wood pulp. The tree’s resin and flowers are also useful parts, including “liquid amber” and “copalm balsam”.
