How to use it. One of my personal favorite uses of honey locust trees is in Paley Park in New York City. The trees soften all of the straight modern lines of this beautiful pocket park. Their compound leaves provide filtered light to the park users below. Because of their forms and their tolerance of stressful urban conditions, they are one of the most popular street trees.

Botanical name: Gleditisia triacanthos inermis Common name: Honey locust (thornless) USDA zones: 4 to 8 (find your zone) Water requirement: Very little beyond initial planting Light requirement: Full sun Mature size: 60 to 100 feet tall; 50 feet wide Benefits and tolerances: The honey locust tolerates drought, flooding and heat. It can thrive in poor soils, including compacted urban soils; it can even stand up to road salt. It is not tolerant of shade and several pests. Seasonal interest: Fragrant yellow-green flowers in spring; bright green compound leaves in summer; yellow autumn color; dark, furrowed bark to admire in winter When to plant: Fall

Distinguishing traits. While honey locusts are known for their wicked thorns, this thornless cultivar is much more user friendly. Honey locusts are best known for their beautiful dappled light. They have deeply furrowed, dark gray or blackish bark. They are fast growing and have straight single trunks, and their silhouettes are oval and quite full. Note: Honey locusts also have seed pods, which drop. Some people consider them messy. How to use it. One of my personal favorite uses of honey locust trees is in Paley Park in New York City. The trees soften all of the straight modern lines of this beautiful pocket park. Their compound leaves provide filtered light to the park users below. Because of their forms and their tolerance of stressful urban conditions, they are one of the most popular street trees.
