Sweet gum doing well

I ordered a sweet gum in Fall of 2021. I planted it where a big oak tree had been taken down. It is doing well, it is now 6 feet tall and miraculously surviving our drought (I do water frequently).

The tree appeared not to have enough roots.

American Sweetgum Tree

We received our little tree, beautifully packaged, with clear instructions for care. Very symmetrical healthy-looking little plant, now planted in the ground, awaiting springtime awakening and growth.

Sweet gum

I received a small tree already planted hopefully it will grow to a big beautiful tree. The package was done well so fingers crossed.
