Customer Reviews & Photos
So far, so good
My Thornless Honeylocust arrived beautifully packaged so there was NO damage at all. I had the hole all ready to go so it was very simple to put it in place. I was concerned because there was only a small tuft of leaves at the very top (it was about 6’) and the trunk itself looked a bit spindly so I staked it (probably would have done so anyway as the area gets a lot of strong winds). Other reviews have said they had new growth almost immediately but I’ve not had that luck. Still, it’s a happy little tree which I hope very soon will be a happy BIG tree! The other trees I’ve purchased here have all done astoundingly well (a 3’ maple planted 3 years ago is about 15’ now with good branching). I’m really VERY happy and will probably purchase more items from time to time.
Tree arrived healthy and in good condition and is growing well so far.
Fast service and good prices
We had a much tougher winter than usual and so were worried to see if these would be ok when spring came around. Both are thriving! They have tons of new growth and are so incredibly leafy. They really do seem to be as tough and low-maintenance as they are advertised!
Very pleased with my tree.
My tree arrived as described. It is growing beautifully. It sprouted new growth within a week of planting. Shipping container was sturdy and held the plant nicely.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: The Shademaster Honeylocust can be planted in any soil or air condition, but it needs to be placed in a spot that receives full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day).
Plant in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. There is no need to amend the soil. You can add mulch under the canopy, but not near the trunk, as the dappled shade will allow plant life to flourish under the canopy.
2. Watering: This tree can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the tree weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. Generally, checking the soil about 2 inches down and watering when dryness is detected is best.
Other than planting and watering, this tree does not require any pruning, fertilizing or pest or disease management.
