    Poor delivery

    I would love to give 5 stars. However the USPS has not delivered my trees yet and does not given a update on their tracking number. Hoping my bare root trees are alive when they finally arrive.

Description

Sassafras Tree Provides Property Owners With Wide Range Of Benefits  

 

 The Sassafras Tree ranks among the more iconic members of the native North American deciduous family, producing lovely spring blooms and unique leaf designs. It remains well-known for its flavorful roots, leaves, flowers, and stems, commonly used as tea and soda ingredients. The aromatic Sassafras Tree matures to 35-60 feet.

Possessing a brown, mahogany bark, the Sassafras Tree tends to spread in unchecked landscapes, and it plays host to a variety of swallowtail butterfly species. A female Sassafras Tree typically enjoys abundant yellow-green flowers in mid-spring, followed by blue fruits along the stalk during late-summer. The male Sassafras Tree tends to produce fewer flowers, although both showcase outstanding fall foliage.

What You Need to Know About The Sassafras Tree

Also referred to as “Sassafras albidum” in botanical circles, the Sassafras Tree flourishes in full sun to partial shade. It thrives across the U.S. from New England to the West of the Great Lakes, deep into Eastern Texas and as far south as Florida.

These are fast facts to consider if you plan to integrate a Sassafras Tree into your landscape.

The tree manages clay, sand, and loam well, and a large tree can produce a root system near the surface for offshoots plants. It can tolerate dry and alkaline soil conditions as well. However, trees and shrubs do not fare well in salty soils and those that suffer poor drainage.
