Characteristics: The Honeylocust features delicate, bipinnately compound leaves that give the tree a lacy, airy appearance. The leaves are bright green during the growing season and turn a striking yellow in the fall. Young trees have smooth greenish-brown bark that matures to a rough, textured, and gray-brown bark, adding interest to the winter landscape.

Soil & Water: They adapt well to a variety of soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. Well-drained soil is essential. Established trees are moderately drought-tolerant, but regular watering is crucial during the first few years of growth. Once mature, they can handle dry conditions. A balanced tree fertilizer can be applied in early spring to promote healthy growth.

It's important to note that while this Honeylocust variety is thornless, some thorns may occur naturally, albeit less in number and smaller in size compared to the thorned varieties. These minimal thorns, if present, are usually not a cause for concern and should not deter you from planting this tree. The aesthetic and practical benefits of the Honeylocust far outweigh any minor thorn-related considerations.

Choose a suitable location with enough space for the tree to grow to its full size.
Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball and at the same depth.
Gently remove the tree from its container or burlap and place it in the hole.
Backfill with soil and water thoroughly to settle the soil.
Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to help conserve moisture and suppress weeds.
Water regularly during the establishment period (first couple of years).
