Re: Root Beer

Sassafrass grows in the woods here.  I don't actively cultivate it, but
there are several on the edge of the property.  It colors up nicely in 
the fall and the logs are fragrant to burn.  The latest book from Brooklyn
Botanic Garden, which arrived yesterday, is "Native Alternative to Invasive
Plants."  This recommends sassafras as an alternative to Sapium 
serbiferum or Chinese Tallow Tree, which is something I never heard of
before, so it must not be invasive in these parts.

We were just talking about root beer, and today Megan, the 
postalperson, delivers the September/October AG with sassafras foliage 
all over the cover. Anyone grow this pretty little tree?
