Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos)

Fast-growing and long-lived, Gleditsia triacanthos (Honey Locust) is a large, thorny, deciduous tree of a graceful habit with a spreading rounded crown. The bright green feathery foliage is pinnately compound with paired, oblong, glossy leaflets that turn brilliant yellow in fall. The light shade it casts makes underplanting easy. Inconspicuous greenish flowers appear in late spring to early summer. Rich in nectar, they attract bees and butterflies. They are followed by long, twisted, reddish brown seed pods to 18 in. long (45 cm), which persist well into winter. Livestock and mammals consume the honeylike, sweet pulp of the pods. Trunk and branches have stout, solitary or three-branched thorns, 3 in. long (7 cm), that are extremely vicious and not suitable for a domestic landscape. Tolerant of wind, heat, drought and salt, Honey Locust is popular for hedges.

    Angela McCafferty

    "Our experience with Heyday Landscaping was extremely positive. Despite our own efforts to “DIY” our yard, we were in need of professional advice. Paul came out it a timely manner, listened to what we were hoping to accomplish and offered many different options. His estimate was very competitive and his timeline for completion was nearly immediate."

    Kent & Lani Noska

    "I have used Heyday Landscaping multiple times and have always been extremely pleased with the completed project.
    As a realtor, I have recommended Heyday Landscaping to my clients when they need to present their home for sale in the best possible light. Someone's first impression of a home comes as they pull up to the property, the landscaping can make or break that impression.
