Just like the looks of a sassafras hiking stick.

Box,

Many years ago I used small Sassafras, saplings for my frog gigs. When dried / seasoned they are very light and durable.

You might check with (ask) some farmers in your area to see if they have some they would not mind you cutting. After explaining what you want them for I feel confident you would be granted access.

Of course a nice "walking stick" as a gift to the farmer may open future doors for you.

Good Luck

I always wanted to make sassafras tea. The home I grew up in had a clump of sassafras trees.

Unfortunately there are no saplings or I would cut a few and bring them up your way.
