Date of tree entry: February 6, 2020
Hamamelis virginiana is primarily found in the moist soil of Eastern North America. This shrub is denser around the stem and has light brown, scaly wood. Its leaves begin as buds and end up as green ovals. It has yellow to orange colored flowers. Its use originates to Native Americans who used witch-hazel for inflammation and tumors. Legend says that its forked branches would point to sources of groundwater which Eurpean settlers propagated. Today it can be found to be used for beatuy products as an astringent. It can even be used to attack colon cancer cells.
