A Favorite (and almost perfect!) Shade Tree
The Shademaster Honeylocust is an almost perfect lawn tree. That’s a big statement, but this is a great tree! The Shademaster grows into the beautiful rounded shape that you expect in a nice lawn tree. The leaves are nicely green through the summer, and turn a lovely golden-yellow in the fall. You’re probably thinking, “That’s pretty normal for a tree”, and you’re right. The Shademanster Honeylocust excels in areas where other trees don’t, though.
The leaves are small and the branches are widely spaced. Why is this good? There are a couple of reasons. First, the tree casts a nice shade for you, but not such a deep shade that the grass or other plantings beneath it can’t grow well. That’s a plus for your lawn. Second, when autumn hits and the leaves fall, you’ll see that they are so small they don’t need to be raked! They aren’t big enough to hurt the grass below them.
Honeylocust trees are native to America, so they are usually very hardy. The Shademaster, though, has been bred to be extra hardy. It isn’t fazed by street or air pollution, salt, soot or challenging soils. Give it plenty of sunlight and watch this fast growing tree thrive.
Many types of honeylocusts have imposing thorns and large seedpods that can be a bit of a disaster to clean up in winter. The Shademaster is both thornless and seedless. There is no mess to clean up! What a great tree.
Practically no maintenance. The perfect amount of shade. Nice color and form. You want this tree for your yard. Don’t hesitate. Buy one today!
