Planting Sweetgum Trees

It's no secret how much I love planting trees, and this year, we're planting so many interesting and beautiful specimens.

Every year, my gardeners and I go through the inventory of potted seedlings and plan where they will go - some in the woodlands, and some in designated areas around my home. I have planted thousands of trees since I purchased my Bedford, New York property. I feel very strongly about giving back to the earth - the more trees planted, the better. Last week, the crew planted a collection of sweetgum trees, Liquidambar styraciflua, in a clearing outside my Northeast paddock and near my American beech tree grove.
