Why Shademaster Honeylocust Trees?
The Shademaster Honeylocust is everything you could want in a shade tree and more. Providing perfect dappled shade with a classic rounded shape, the Shademaster Honeylocust Tree is highly adaptable, tolerant, hardy, and pest and disease-free.
It's synonymous with the classic shade tree. Though shade trees come in many shapes and sizes, there's something nostalgic about the rounded canopy of a Shademaster Honeylocust. Growing to a large mature height, the Shademaster is ideally sized and rounded, ensuring a timeless Americana look you'll love in your lawn.
And small leaves mean no mess to clean up in the fall. Other shade trees have huge foliage that leave a big mess to clean up in autumn. The Shademaster Honeylocust's leaves are small and delicate But though the leaves may be small, they still dazzle during fall. Turning from bright spring green to golden yellow, the transition of colors on these leaves are reminiscent of the nostalgic sights and smells of autumn.

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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
It was a very simple way to purchae a tree. They updated me constantly on when it would be shipped and if there were any delays they let me know. i was never worried about my purchase. It arrived in good condition and was easy to transplant it into my yard. its doing well. looks good. there was one small problem where my purchase was actually shipped to my neighbor but luckily i have a nice honest neighbor. not sure if that was my miss type there mistake or fedex. these things happen. great experience overall.
I never ordered from you before but, since I could not locate this tree in any of our nurseries in my area, I took a chance. Happy to say the tree arrived in beautiful condition and I will be planting it tomorrow. Hope it continues to grow as I need shade in front. Thanks for your great service. Would definitely order from you again and will recommend your company to my friends.
Since this tree has just recently been planted, I can’t say how well it will root/grow. However, I have high hopes for it. It arrived entirely intact (no broken branches, well packed root ball.) It is tall and spindly so far as is normal, however, we have high winds here on the Maine coast, so I worry about it a little. I wish I had a support system in place, but my husband will be making one.
The Honeylocust tree arrived in perfect condition and seems to be starting off well. I most definitely would order from you again for planting other trees.
