View Full Version : anyone know anything about trees

I was digging up the ground to plant some stuff today and I had to cut up some roots...

I noticed after I cut them they smelled REALLY strong and a lot like ginger (but they are tree roots so obviously not actual ginger)

I can not find out online what type of tree this is?

It's not sassafras and it's not eucalyptus (unless it's some species I couldnt find online)

the leaves are sort of like the eucalyptus leaves but they aren't long and skinny, just shorter and more oval-shaped. (also not waxy)

its a medicinal gingery vanilla flavor! dangit this is bugging me!

It's an ailanthus altissima.

We talking about the kind of trees that you smoke?

Sounds like a larch to me. You didn't let it contact your skin right?
