Floof tree is coming back! Very Excited to plant this when I found out it's a remnant from the days of mastodons. It relied on MASTODONS!
It's a Kentucky coffeetree, currently native to a few swampy river drainage areas in the Midwest.
It's got super hard seed pods whose seeds don't germinate unless they're chomped open by megafauna.
Nowadays they only germinate if they fall in wetlands that can rot the pods open. That seriously restricted their range.
