Liquidambar styraciflua is indigenous in N.America, and also commonly planted as an ornamental. The tree at present is in flowering and I shall send the pictures soon.

Vijayasankar ji
You are tempting me to upload mine from California. I have more than 1000 species from the area photographed during three years of visit.
Here are of this species, commonest in our apartment complex in Sunnyvale.

Dr Raman and Dr Gurucharan ji:
This is very commonly planted street tree in some neighborhoods...in
NY.. and in Connecticut... called sweetgum... the leaves are unique,
and the seepods scratchy to say the least...

Leaves turn kinda brown in NY but its bright orangeish red in CT....

And Dr Gurucharanji...1000? wow... cant wait to see ....

Yes Usha di
You know when I visited USA in 2008 and saw it for the first time, Platanus and Acer (maple) came to my mind, leaves of maple and infl. of Platanus, till I finally got it identified through TAXACOM Group.

Gurucharanji:
Is n't it exhilarating (at least for me it is) when I track down the identity of some plant... based on photos or finally description, toxonomic details...though I am not very comfortable with taxonomy yet...  thogh I imagine it can't be any more difficult to master than the weird rare cancers.... or endocrime  or immunological disorders....

were you elated when you discovered the sweetgum identity?  I do not remember if it turns any nice color in california...
