[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Liquidambar styraciflua, commonly called the American sweetgum, sweet-gum (sweet gum in the UK),hazel pine, American-storax,bilsted,red-gum, satin-walnut,star-leaved gum or alligator-wood, is a deciduous tree in the genus Liquidambar native to warm temperate areas of eastern North America and tropical montane regions of Mexico and Central America. Sweetgum it's one of the main forest trees valuable in south-eastern of United States and popular ornamental tree in temperate climates, it is recognizable by the combination of its five-pointed star-shaped leaves and its hard, spiked fruits.

Here I show their flashy prickly fruit, very decorative. This tree has been successfully introduced in my country, Argentina.
