The Honey locust tree can reach a height of 66–100 feet, and can live up to 150 years. The name of the tree is derived from the sweet honey-like taste of the legume (pod) which is edible.  Small leaflets (1/2 to under 1 inch) turn yellow in the fall. Strongly scented cream-colored flowers appear in late spring on this thornless variety.  

The Honey Locust tolerates urban conditions, compacted soil, road salt, alkaline soil, heat and drought. Its popularity is in part due to the fact that it transplants so easily. The fast growth rate and tolerance of poor site conditions make it valued in areas where shade is wanted quickly, such as new parks or housing developments.
