  1. sassafras tree

    A sassafras tree is a deciduous tree native to North America and Eastern Asia known for its unique leaf shapes, aromatic scent, and bright autumn colors. Its scientific name is Sassafras albidum. Extract from the tree's roots was traditionally used to flavor beverages like root beer and tea, but has become less common due to the discovery of potentially harmful components. The tree generally grows to about 30 to 60 feet tall, with leaves that come in three different shapes: oval, mitten-shaped, and three-lobed. In autumn, the leaves turn vivid colors of yellow, orange, and red.
