Storax, sweetgum or red gum (Liquidambar styraciflua) is a large deciduous tree native to North and Central America, in Europe these gums are often cultivated in parks as an ornamental tree, the spectacular autumnal coloring ranges from fiery red to dark purple. The tree got its name by the lots of resin (gum) stored in bark and sapwood (Liquidambar=liquid amber), that easily flows out and can be collected when the balsam pockets are tapped. Ingredients of the aromatic resin yielded from this tree are widely used in chewing gum, perfumes, cosmetics and flavours. Sweetgum is one of the most important commercial hardwoods in the US, the heartwood shows bright reddish brown colour against contrasting creamy white sapwood. It is dense and medium hard, fine grained and mostly straight figured and used for furniture and veneer purposes. It finishes easily and will take a beautiful polish.
