Sassafras

Sassafras (Sassafras albidum) heartwood is a medium to light brown, sometimes with an orange or olive hue. Color tends to darken with age. Sapwood is a paler yellowish brown, though it isn’t always clearly demarcated from the heartwood. Overall, Sassafras bears a strong resemblance to ash (Fraxinus spp.) and chestnut (Castanea spp.).

To Native Americans, sassafras oils were freely used in tonics as medical panaceas and culinary uses. Sassafras oil can be extracted from root bark or fruit of the tree; these same roots were traditionally used in the making of root beer, and the familiar scent is prevalent in the leaves and wood. Sassafras trees are generally too small to be commercially viable on a large scale, but limited quantities of lumber and turning blanks are available for a modest price. Common uses are Utility lumber, fence posts, boatbuilding, and furniture.
