This is a sassafras tree Shaan and I planted in the backyard about 10 years ago. He brought it home one day from kindergarten. He was excited because he had just learned about native trees and why we should plant them instead of the invasive European and Asian trees that some people prefer. The sassafras is native to New Jersey.

The tree has grown over the years. From a small six inch “twig” it has grown to the second level of the house. Shaan can see it from his bedroom window but it is planted right under Kiran’s bedroom window.

“Sassifrasi”– that’s the trees nickname — lost some limbs during the last hurricane but it otherwise very health. Today the freezing rain has turn it into a sort of crystal chandelier.
