The sassafras tree is a special tree that is found as a part of the In Pyre Need quest to help rescue the Phoenix. The "Harvest-twigs" option on this tree gives sassafras twigs, and left-click "Fletch" on the twigs turns it into sassafras weaving ribbon, one of five weaving ribbons to be used on the pyre to kill the Phoenix and have it reborn.
