Black Locust

 Fast-Growing Ornamental Tree


The Black Locust is a fast-growing, hardy ornamental tree. Plant it near a window so you can enjoy its spring fragrance.


Carried on the late spring breeze, the honeysuckle-like bouquet of the Black Locust will reach out and draw you to it.


The allure of the fragrant, long, hanging clusters of pure white, sweet pea-like blossoms dripping from the grey branches won’t be overlooked by the hummingbirds who are returning from their winter sojourns.


Reach up and pluck a blossom to pop into your mouth. You’ll be surprised by the sweet tasting nature of this incredible flower.


When spring passes, your locust will still delight with its elegant form and handsome foliage that will quickly fill out your Locust for the summer months.


Reaching a height of 50 feet, with a spread of 35 feet, your Locust is a fast-grower that will provide beauty and shade in your landscape in no time at all.


Your Locust’s seed is a 5-inch pod with a unique purplish hue that your birds will certainly be thankful for.


In the fall, your Locust’s leaves will turn a pretty yellow as a fitting close to the season.


There aren’t many trees as tough as this one. The Locust is so hardy that it will not only tolerate difficult conditions, but thrive in them.


It is drought and cold hardy, and is even a nitrogen-fixing plant, so can help remedy problem soil types.


The Black Locust is a fast-growing, hardy tree with incredible ornamental features. Plant one today and begin enjoying its rare and unique features.


* Fast-growing

Wildlife tree Review by June
Rating
This is a good tree for wildlife but not so good if you want to climb it, due to the thorns.
Very pleased Review by SE Sammy

The black locusts I received were hearty and in excellent condition upon receipt. I am quite pleased with the quality of the product.
They can serve a purpose where there are no children~ Review by CheriLovesJesus

All the reviews are very helpful,accept no one commented on the edible use of the flowers or seeds. I would really like to see someone comment as to salads,etc. Also would it be worth the time to place bee hive boxes for honey? At this point the Locus tree sounds like it more trouble than not. Unless you have a castle to protect with the thorns. Although the firewood use is cool and the fact that this tree grows fast and the wood is strong, I would like to see farms produce these trees and stop using our forests.

These are the fastest growing trees I've ever seen, but they have a strange shape--we call them the Dr Suess trees. We are removing two of them from our front yard after only 5 years. The root shoots show up everywhere, specially between the cracks in the driveway and along the house. The have traveled 20 feet and my neighbors asked me remove the trees. The tree branches also tend to die. I am taking the trees out before they get any bigger.
I like it Review by BOOMA

I own a hunting cabin and some acreage in northern Arkansas that has quite a few Black Locusts mixed in with the other varied hardwoods. I have sawed up some of them that were blown down for firewood and you just can't beat it for that purpose. I have also sawn some into lumber for outdoor projects and it is fantastic! No need to paint or otherwise treat this stuff, it's good for decades just as it is. It's some really hard wood and you have to sharpen your chainsaw frequently but it's worth the trouble. I also enjoy the shade from the ones growing right around the cabin.
