Black Gum Tree

Alternative Views:

Black Gum trees prefer acidic soil and are often found growing in swampy areas. The trees have an asymmetrical branch structure and tower above most trees, reaching 80-90' at maturity. Usually, the Black Gum Tree will be one of the first to show color change in early Fall and the red leaves of the Black Gum are thin and translucent in autumn, giving the tree a beautiful glow in the sunlight.

The leaves of the Black Gum Tree turn red or purple in fall, followed by small black berries, which wildlife animals love to eat, and the tree can grow huge in the wettest of soils but does not grow quite as tall on drier land. The Black Gum Tree is also called the Sour Gum Tupelo, and a rare tree to find in nurseries. Especially noted in the south, the Black Gum tree turns bright colors of yellow, red, and maroon in the fall. The Black Gum Tree grows 90 Ft. tall in wet areas and is never bothered by pests, and is a medium to fast-growing tree, and has spectacular fall-colors, that is found throughout the East and Central States.

Great Experience with TyTy April 13, 2016
Reviewer: Ashley Robinson from Hollidaysburg, PA United States  
I first came to Ty Ty because of their selection. I was a bit hesitant purchasing a tree online without seeing it first but after receiving, I was so glad I took the leap. Ordering was easy and the product was excellent. Our 8ft Black Gum arrived on time, in good shape and was easy to plant. Now, the real test is making sure that it thrives.

Broken Tree March 26, 2016
Reviewer: Gary from Vestal, NY United States  
I had ordered 2 trees and alas, one came broken I contacted Ty Ty and they are shipping a new tree... I had sent them picture, but they said that was not necessary.  The only reason for not 5 stars is that one tree came broken, excellent customer service

my tree order January 19, 2016
Reviewer: Vicki Robertson from Hillsborough, NC United States  
The trees I received were the best I have ever gotten from an online order.  The trees' roots were complete (not cut off like many nursery orders) and the trees were not mere twigs but the trunks and branches looked healthy and full.  I will definitely be ordering more trees from Ty Ty.

height January 14, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I wanted to start out with a tall tree so paid for 8-9 ft one.  5 ft tree was delivered.  Didn't know about the pruning before shipping.  Would have been nice to know ahead of time instead a was disappointed when I opened package.
