Propagating historical but controversial tree
« on: July 07, 2020, 05:53:23 PM »
I'm growing a few trees for a museum complex in my Dad's/grandparents' hometown.  They're grown from a prominent honey locust the property.  My thought was to donate them since they are in keeping with history.  Some have said this is a trash tree.  Just looking for your input.

It's beautiful lumber. I don't trash the ones we have.

I also think that it is a beautiful tree if you can deal with the thorns.  Some horticultural varieties are thornless.

The tree I got the seed pods from is a spineless one.

Honey Locusts are nice looking.trees with a great canopy. The lumber is excellent as well. Id have no issues with planting them. Here in Milwaukee its a common city tree.

  • Good thing that foresters are a different breed.

Go for it. We have the Idaho state champion Honey Locust in the town I live near. Beautiful tree, tall, stately and drought resistant. Just make sure your seeds are from good genetic stock.
