Sassafras Tree

Consider the sassafras tree if you want a beautiful tree to add to your landscaping. You can get this aromatic tree shipped quickly to your home nationwide.

Fast-growing Shade Tree
The sassafras tree (Sassafras albidum) is a native Missourian tree that typically grows between 30 and 60 feet tall. This variety grows about 24 inches annually, so you can quickly have a beautiful shade tree as its canopy is almost as wide as the tree is tall.

Beautiful Throughout the Year

You will love the leaves on this tree in the fall when they turn bright yellow, deep orange, scarlet, and purple. This tree's beautiful yellow blossoms look great in the spring, and each cluster of flowers is between 1 and 2 inches long. During the summer months, you will love seeing the medium green leaves on this tree that resemble a mitten.

Smells Wonderful
The aroma of this tree is so unique that the first European settlers wrote about it in their journals, and you will find that your neighbors and friends ask you about the sweet fragrance. Each part of this tree has its aroma. The bark of the tree smells like cinnamon, the roots like root beer, and the leaves like sweet lemon.

Easy to Grow
The sassafras tree is straightforward to grow. The female tree produces a fruit resembling a blueberry in a red cup. Once the fruit ripens in the fall will attract many birds to your yard as they find the fruit very tasty.

Thrives in Any Environment
You can use the sassafras tree in many places in your landscaping if it gets about four hours or more of sunlight daily. Gardeners often grow it in sites with soil that need to be restored because it can grow almost anywhere as it sends out suckers looking for the things it needs to thrive. You can keep it pruned to create a specimen tree or let it grow naturally, creating a thick hedge.
