Gleditsia triacanthos Shademaster is often called the Honeylocust Tree. It is a native tree in the pea family that can grow to be 75 feet tall. The Honeylocust has small leaflets which will provide filtered soft shade. It is a low-maintenance fast-growing tree that requires little or no fall raking since the leaves are small. They seem to disappear into the ground when they drop in fall. It is cold hardy and tolerant of drought conditions and even some salinity. Shademaster is a good choice for windbreaks and erosion control.
