Sassafras Tree - Sassafras albidum

Sassafras tree is highly prized for its aromatic leaves and roots, which were once used to make traditional sassafras tea, which is ground to make the file for Cajun-style file gumbo. Sassafras can be planted in dense thickets to produce brilliant foliage displays in fall, or it can be planted alone as a shade or ornamental tree. The tree's seeds are also suitable for germination. Seeds are collected in the autumn and planted the following spring.
