American Sweet Gum

American Sweet Gum

In the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne, New Year's Day, 2017. This American Sweet Gum (Liquidambar styraciflua) has a branch that extends so far out that it needs to be supported by two large poles that hold the far end of the branch up "in a semi-permanent fashion" - they think the limb might grow even longer!
