Sweetgum Tree Leaf

The American sweetgum, Liquidambar styraciflua, is a graceful native tree with distinctive five-pointed leaves. I chose it to represent my business for several reasons: it provides cooling shade in the summer and striking color in the fall, which are important sustainability and design considerations; its foliage nourishes the caterpillar of the magnificent luna moth, thus helping to restore natural habitat; and it produces lots of prickly seed balls ("loose parts") that are fun for children to collect.
