Sweetgums were very common in the town I grew up in including one outside the kitchen window at the house. I don't remember seeing many in the old home place area out in the country but we had a house on the lake too and there was one beside the barn there. I was looking on Google maps street view and neither one are there now.

Sweet Gum everywhere here in north Alabama they cut them for cross ties because they soak up creosote treatment so well.

Sweetgum is problematic in drying as it tends to warp unless weighted and restrained. Untreated wood has very little weather resistance.

Typical uses are for the inner plies of veneer plywood and railroad ties. Known for white smooth straight grain.

I didn't like stepping on the little dingle berry seeds. With shoes on they didn't hurt the bottom of your feet but may cause you to turn your ankles. As a kid, they were a good climbing tree.

I used a Dremel with a small cut off wheel and followed around the circumference of the seal.

I would have to secure the seal in a vice like clamp and hold the Dremel with both hands.

That would not be a bad idea but I held the seal with the left hand and cut it with my right.
