The tree that’s most captured my attention on recent guided hikes I’ve been doing is the red alder. The Alder’s bark, leaves, and cones are medicinal. The Alder has multiple uses for many different walks of life.

Alder is also used internally as a remedy for tuberculosis and sore throat. Its external usage is a wash for skin infections. Check out more here.
