Latin Name: Robinia pseudoacacia
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. Over time, the trunk and older branches develop a thick, furrowed bark in handsome contrast to the delicacy of the tree’s pale green, oval-shaped leaves. In June, black locusts are resplendent with clusters of white, fragrant flowers.
