From Tonewooddatasource:

Liquidambar styraciflua, commonly called American sweetgum, sweetgum, sweet gum, sweet-gum[1] (sweet gum in the UK),[2] hazel pine,[3] American-storax,[1] bilsted,[4] red-gum,[1] satin-walnut,[1] star-leaved gum,[4] alligator-wood,[1] or itchy ball tree is a deciduous tree in the genus Liquidambar native to warm temperate areas of eastern North America and tropical montane regions of Mexico and Central America. Sweet gum is one of the main valuable forest trees in the southeastern United States, and is a popular ornamental tree in temperate climates. It is recognizable by the combination of its five-pointed star-shaped leaves and its hard, spiked fruits. It is currently classified in the plant family Altingiaceae, but was formerly considered a member of the Hamamelidaceae.
