Natural Root Beer Flavor

The Sassafras Tree is a must have for root beer lovers everywhere because the leaves and roots are used to naturally flavor root beer sodas, teas, candy and more. Sassafras trees will provide an endless supply of root beer in your own yard.

Today mass-produced root beer items are artificially flavored, but the Sassafras tree used to be the main flavor ingredient. That’s why the root beer you grew up with tasted better. Use sassafras leaves and roots to return to the best tasting, organically flavored root beer of your childhood days by simply boiling them in water.

Along with providing flavorful leaves used to make drinks and cure meats Sassafras trees have a natural aroma, similar to root beer, that naturally sweetens the landscape during warm summer days.

Sassafras Trees have color for every season sand kick off the spring with tons of bright yellow blooms to brighten up the scenery. Then the iconic three lobed lush sassafras leaves grow to create a thick, full green canopy all summer long.

In the fall the green leaves turn stunning shades of yellow and red to attract everyone to their blazing beauty in both urban and countryside settings. Dark berries that birds and other small wildlife enjoy hang off of bright red stems for a striking color contrast.

Once the vibrant leaves drop, they reveal the Sassafras Trees’ stunning wrinkled white bark that stands out amongst the winter landscape with eye-catching beauty.

Grow Sassafras Trees anywhere in the country. They are recommended for growing zones 4 through 9. Cold temperatures and ice up north and humidity and heat down south pose no threats to this low maintenance, hardy tree. There’s no excuse for not growing your own root beer.

Sassafras Trees are sweet and beautiful trees that sell out fast. Be sure to order yours before they are all gone.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sassafras Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Sassafras Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Sassafras Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Sassafras Tree again after the transplant is complete.
