Thornless Honeylocust

Gleditsia tracanthos var. iermis

Location: Central (54)

Native to the central United States, this tree has filled a void left by the deaths of many street-side Elms. It has a pleasing form and a natural hardiness. Reproduction and dispersion are accomplished by means of a pod that drops from the tree in winter and that can slide over the snow for great distances.
