Sassafras Live Stakes are Deciduous Trees 

The sassafras tree is native to North America and East Asia.  A mature sassafras tree can reach between 20 to 60 feet in height or more, and 25 to 40 feet in width. Regarding soil requirements, the sassafras tree can grow in a variety of soils. However, it grows best in acidic soil that is sandy and well-drained. The sassafras tree can grow in hardiness zones 4 to 9 and is considered resistant to drought. The growth rate is deemed to be medium to fast growing, with trees growing between 13 inches to 24 inches or more within a year. Some plants have developed over 15 feet in 4 years. Concerning lighting requirements, the sassafras tree grows best in full sun to partial shade, with at least 4 hours of direct sunlight.

Sassafras Live Stakes can survive over 1,000 years in the Wild with the Ideal Growing Environment

In the spring, the sassafras tree blooms with clusters of yellow flowers. These yellow flowers are 1 to 2 inches long and can be up to a half-inch in diameter. After a few days, the flowers are replaced by bright green leaves. At full maturity, the leaves can grow to be 3 to 7 inches long. A sassafras tree produces three types of leaves simultaneously. It produces oval-shaped leaves, three-lobed leaves, as well as mitten-shaped leaves. It should be noted that the mitten-shaped leaves can be either left or right-handed. The edges of the leaves are smooth. In the fall, the leaves turn a spectrum of colors, including yellow, orange, scarlet, and sometimes purple. It also may acquire half-inch dark blue fruit in the fall.

Sassafras Live Stakes are also known for their fragrant smell, which is similar to root beer

The full leaves form a light-blocking canopy. The bark of the Sassafras tree is green and smooth when it is young and may become more orange or brown as it ages. It’s important to note that the plant can be trained as a single trunk tree or a bushy thicket. When it is young, the sassafras tree generally has the appearance of a shrub, with a central trunk and smaller saplings surrounding it. As the plant matures, it will begin to form a defined tree shape, with one distinct trunk. The tree forms wide, with a flat top. While this odor is mild in the spring when the flowers bloom, it continues to become more prominent throughout summer.
