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.

5 of 5 Very happy tree June 3, 2021
Reviewer: Lady Tabali from Corpus Christi, Texas  
This one filled out fairly well, though it is potted until I find the ideal location for it.  Happy for this unique speciman to be available.

5 of 5 Great delivery! May 6, 2021
Reviewer: Eric Wells from Salem, IN United States  
Can’t tell you if the trees will live or not as we just planted two days ago. The quality and care of the delivery though was spot on. Great packaging and only took about a week to get. Hopefully the Black Gums we got will be big and beautiful.

5 of 5 Pleasantly Surprised April 21, 2021
Reviewer: Carla Lawson from Ohio  
These trees were part of my first order. I must say that they were in excellent health, fast shipping  and well packaged. I love that they are shipped bare root. I have knee issues and was able to move and plant them by myself. Great quality trees at an exceptional value. I am looking forward to ordering again.
