Honeylocust Tree - Perfect native tree for a natural barrier. (2 years old and 3-4 feet tall.)
Honeylocust trees grow tall and full quickly and their limbs are adorned with thorns that can grow up to two inches long! These are ideal for a natural barrier on a property line or an ornamental accent tree in a landscape. Their small leaves tend to blow away in the fall since they are lightweight, leaving few leaves needing to be raked! This makes for many less hours spent raking when compared to other popular shade varieties like heavy-leaved maple trees. Honeylocust have been widely planted in the urban Midwest, where they are native. They are quite attractive due to their adaptability, low maintenance, and beautiful yellow fall color! Honeylocust are considered to be a very dense and strong hardwood. The lumber is often used for furniture, flooring, or as very long-lasting firewood.
