The Skyline Honeylocust, 'Gleditsia trianthos inermis "Skyline", is a great lawn tree and street tree that is useful for the light shade it casts. The tree provides filtered shade due the small leaves which permits turf to grow beneath the canopy.
This 50 - 60' tall tree has a compact spreading habit and produces a stronger trunk than most honeylocust trees.
It produces few seeds and has very fine-textured foliage that turns yellow in fall. The Imperial Honeylocust is very drought tolerant. This tree also has some resistance to deer.
The Skyline tolerates heat and drought and does well in compacted soil and city conditions. They are tolerant of salt, pollution and for best results, plant in full sunlight.
