Wildfire black gum tree pros and cons

Planting for production really isn't an easy task in the modern environment. For road trees cultivated in tree pits, which some agronomists refer to as planting tombs, have an average life expectancy around 12 years.

Trees will provide a significant amount of financial, cultural and health benefits to our societies when trees are allowed and encouraged to grow to their full ability. The selection of the correct tree for the right site is an important initial step that encourages urban trees to grow to their maximum capacity. One instance of a native plant that can be successfully introduced into the urban environment in New Hampshire's (NH) native Nyssa sylvatica, generally referred to as black gum.

Black gum has the inherent potential to reach a height of 74 feet within the optimized condition. However, it usually only rises to a height of up to 60 feet with a crown spread of 20 to 30 feet because of the undesirable conditions in the urban environment. Planting this unique species in areas with height limits, such as under power lines, doesn't make sense. Black gum should, where feasible, be cultivated in a position that provides sufficient soil space for its root system. In broad tree gardens, medium to large parking lot beaches, playgrounds, and even as a street tree in smaller cities, black gum has grown well.

Black gum is one of of the preferred local plants that should be cultivated more widely in the urban environment, and it is claimed to be the habitat of the oldest known tree in NH. It is a hardwood deciduous tree, most widely noticed in the autumn for its early show of stunning yellow, red and purple coloured leaves.
