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 First time tree planters March 21, 2020
Reviewer: Krisnadi Poedjosoedarmo from Rockville, MD United States  
It was packed very nicely. Instructions on how to plant for a first time planter was clear. My 9 year old son helped me with the work. He had a lot of fun and it was a great experience. Kind of wish we had more land so we can plant more trees from you guys.

3 of 5 we will see April 28, 2019
Reviewer: Mike from Michigan  
One of the Black Gums can in somewhat of an S shape, not straight. These came bare root - that is fine, but the root ball on several of the trees were small. Unfortunately, the package had been damaged in the mail. I do not know if this influenced the product to keep the roots moist, but they were mildly dry taking them out of the package, except on tree root system was fine as the moisture packing material have moved to one side. I am watering daily and we will see if they take root.
