Although sweet gum is a popular street tree, it has a large root system that often cracks or lifts sidewalks and paved roads. It's wise to plant your tree 8 to 10 feet away from areas such as driveways, which could be negatively affected by this tree's aggressive roots. No hybrids of sweetgum are known to exist.
