Stunning Shade and Color

Why Sassafras Trees?

Sassafras Trees have bold colors across all seasons, kicking off the spring with tons of bright yellow blooms to brighten up the scenery. 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 for blazing beauty in both urban and countryside settings. Dark berries hang off of bright red stems for striking color contrast that's second to none.

Once the vibrant leaves drop, they reveal the Sassafras Trees’ stunning wrinkled white bark that stands out amongst the winter landscape. And the best part? You get this visual interest nearly anywhere in the country.

Whether you're in an icy area up north or hot, humid climate down south, you can grow this carefree tree. And you can even make root beer from this multi-purpose must-have! Simply plant two Sassafras Trees, and reap the benefits of your own homemade beverage brew.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

It's nearly impossible to find a Sassafras this healthy and robust from your local garden center or big-box nursery.

In fact, most big-box retailers sell their plants bare-root, giving you a lower chance of long-term success in your own garden.

But when you order from Fast Growing Trees, we ensure that your tree is planted, grown, and meticulously nurtured from day one.

Sassafras Trees are one-of-a-kind trees that sell out fast. Be sure to order yours before they are all gone!

Sassafras tree

The tree was a gift. Very well packaged. I just thought it would be a little bit larger, but nice.
