    The thornless honeylocust is essentially seedless, and with small leaflets 1/3 to ½ inch long, there is little need for all raking. Honeylocust is an excellent lawn tree for providing filtered shade, and is relatively fast growing – up to two feet per year.  Very tolerant of drought, compact soil, and salt. Honeylocust will grow 45’ tall with a 35’ spread, and will be offered at DNR Cerro Gordo county and Dewitt residential tree distributions this fall:  http://www.iowadnr.gov/Environment/Forestry/UrbanForestry/ResidentialTreePrograms.aspx
