Black Locust Tree


It’s hard to think of a tree that is at once so beautiful, beneficial, and easy to grow. Not only does the black locust offer tremendous wildlife value as it reaches about 40-60′ tall, for bees, mammals, and birds, but it is also helpful for nitrogen-fixing and erosion. Because it grows so fast and is also easily propagated, it is great for land reclamation.
