Meet The "Honey Locust"

Meet The "Honey Locust"


The Honey Locust is a large deciduous tree with an open spreading crown and branched spines growing from the trunk and branches. The flat brown hairy pods are often a foot or more long and twisted in appearance. The leaves have 7-16 pairs of leaflets. Flowers are bell shaped and grow in small upright clusters.

This tree grows naturally in many habitats throughout the Eastern United States. The cultivated forms often lack the prickly spines that many tree workers dread working around!
