Sassafras, Sassafras Albidum

Despite its name, this tree is not sassy, but instead quite helpful. Like many other trees on this trail, it's lumber can be used for or as: barrels, buckets, posts, small boats, dugout canoes, and fuel. Unquily, if you boil a peice of the outer bark of the trees roots it can make a type of natureal tea although today it does have some heath conserns to do so.
