It is native to the western part of Pennsylvania spreading into the Midwest. Kentucky is the first place early settlers first came across the tree which is where it gets its common name. It is a poor substitute for coffee, but back in the early days it had to do... I am not aware of any benefit it has for wildlife. It is easy to propagate and a hardy tree. It grows best on alkaline soils and is often a good indicator of limestone soils. So find a good limestone trout stream and there may be a coffeetree or two growing nearby...
