Honeylocust

from 22.00

Available in lots of 25 ($22 for 25 seedlings)

Honeylocust is native to eastern Nebraska. This medium-lived, relatively fast growing tree lends itself well to windbreak plantings. The fine-textured foliage of the honeylocust gives partial shade and turns a golden yellow in the fall. Honeylocust is used in multi-row windbreaks to increase the effective height of the windbreak. The twisted flat seed pods are 6-10 inches long. Cattle often eat the seed pods because they have a sweet taste.

Mimosa webworm and other insects present minor problems. Canker diseases may cause occasional branch dieback but are usually not serious problems unless the trees are in a weakened condition. The "thornless" variety is distributed.
