Product Description

A graceful, thornless tree with bright green, fern-like foliage. The dense branching creates a symmetrical rounded crown above a straight trunk. Fall foliage is yellow. It may produce seed pods.
A very important tree for difficult climates. Honeylocust leaf out later than most other shade trees, thus protecting them from devastating late spring freezes and heavy snow. This tree is also very water thrifty and heat tolerant. Another good reason to plant Honeylocust is because they drop their leaves earlier in the fall which keeps them from being damaged by early hard freezes and heavy snow. Finely textured, dark green, fern-like foliage turns golden-yellow in fall. An excellent choice for lawn areas because its deep roots stay well below the surface. Thornless.
Hardy to -30°F
Maximum Elevation: 6,000 Feet
