Liquidambar (Liquidambar styraciflua) is a deciduous tree native to Mexico and the USA. Its name came from the Latin words for “fluid” and “amber”, characterising the sticky fluid coming from its sapwood. This also earned Liquidambar the name Sweetgum.
Liquidambars grow up to 20 m and may live up to 400 years. Although its reptile-like, corky bark is among its most distinguishable features, Liquidambars are more popularly known in Sydney for their majestic foliage—impressive red, orange, and yellow hues.
While Liquidambar’s starry five-pointed leaves resemble those of Maple’s, the glossy and leather-like texture of its leaves set it apart from Maple leaves. Nevertheless, foliage from both trees is wonderful on a typical autumn day.
That said, Liquidambars are commonly grown as ornamental trees, thus earning poetic garden names like ‘Golden Treasure’ and ‘Moonbeam’.
But despite its warm and gentle image, Liquidambars are hardy trees with strong and aggressive root systems that may affect properties and neighbourhood piping systems. In these instances, you might need to consult with a tree removal expert.
Liquidambar trees provide a picturesque autumn view and abundant shade to any garden, park, or street they sit on. How can you not love them, right?
Hence, it’s always disheartening to see these trees go when they grow big enough to disrupt pipelines, transmission wires, and other properties. But it’s the right and safe thing to do.
