One of the first trees to share their medicine with us is the Cottonwood. Ice storms and other strong weather systems tend to snap the brittle ends of Cottonwoods branches off, delivering their medicine within easy reach all around us on the ground. The resinous buds and twigs are what we are after to glean the sweet medicine that Cottonwood offers.
