Product Overview

Thornless Honeylocust – A Popular Ornamental Tree

Why Thornless Honeylocust?

The honey locust, scientifically known as Gleditsia triacanthos and sometimes thorny honey locust or thorny locust, is a tree that sheds its leaves in the fall and is a member of the Fabaceae family. It is only found in its native environment in the middle of North America, in the moist soil in river valleys. Not only is the honey locust a species highly adaptable to a wide range of environments, but it is also one that is very invasive and has been spread all over the world.

It has a small stem and an open, spreading crown, and the leaves have a fine texture and are compounded in a pinnate technique. This gives it a delicate appearance.

The pulp is green in color in unripe pods, but in mature pods, it is very sweet, crisp, and succulent. In the cracks and crevices of the pulp, you'll find beans that are a deep brown color and rich in tannin.

It is not difficult to transplant, can withstand lousy clay soils, urban settings, salt, drought, and even damage from black walnuts, and is resistant to damage caused by deer.

    Trees arrived in perfect condition. We have only recently planted them but they appear very strong and lasting. We look forward to seeing them grow and would be willing to write a review in the Spring!

    Good evening, I live on the Bayou of Louisiana, so there is a lot of saltwater there and even though I just received my trees I know that they will grow strong and bring beauty to my home and yard
