Locust leaves.

Latin Name: Robinia pseudoacacia

Locations: Everywhere! 

Tree stats: Black locust is native to Pennsylvania and Iowa and south from Georgia to Oklahoma. This fast-growing but relatively short-lived tree usually tops out at 50 feet and spans 25 feet wide.

In June, black locusts are resplendent with clusters of white, fragrant flowers.
