The Sassafras Tree usually has better success if its saplings are container-grown, and it grows to a tall, beautiful native tree that grows anywhere from 30-60 ft. tall. The roots of the Sassafras Tree were considered to be medicinal cures for many diseases, and in many cases caused the patients to get highs that are normally associated with alcohol and drugs; many soldiers reported experiencing hallucinations. Today, products containing safrole are regulated by the FDA because of liver complications caused by high concentrations.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lake Villa, IL United States  
The dormant sapling was exactly as I expected, healthy with nice root development. It's been just  a week and already starting to bud! And, they sent two!!!  Very nicely packaged for shipment, very pleased. And GREAT price!

Hard to tell June 9, 2016
Reviewer: Ted H from Mt Tabor, NJ United States  
A bare-root tree with no limbs or leaves is a little hard to judge right out of the box, so let's wait to see how it transplants...

Bare root tree April 16, 2016
Reviewer: william moore from huntington, WV United States  
As with the ginkgo tree we ordered, I am giving an excellent review based on how quickly we received the trees we ordered and their condition. As stated in my previous review, we are not knowledgeable about bare root trees,but my neighbor is and he said the condition of the tree was fine. So using the instructions provided by the company, we planted the tree and only time will tell  how well they grow. I think some of the negative reviews were based on people not knowing what to expect when they see a bare root tree. My neighbor said both of the trees we ordered were healthy
