What to do with sweet gum

(1/2) > >>

BowFish:
Iíve got a lot of sweet gum on my property, and was wondering if it was good for anything.

Tacotodd:
Burning 🔥 Let it dry for a few YEARS (at least 2) and then youíll be able to split it with a maul or an axe. Be warned, not as many BTUís as oak. I donít have a splitter, but a good one should do the job.

Also not good for walking around the yard barefoot! The little pods look like sea urchins.

Southside:
Or you can sell it for $500 a slab.  Your choice.  Cut these today.

From what I've been told, sweet gum is kinda plain and not very pretty fresh cut, but if you let it lay for a year or so and then mill it the colors can be quite pretty
