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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
- leaf buds
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.
This was the first tree that I purchased last summer from Fast Growing Trees.Com. Tree arrived as promised and was well packaged even for an over-sized tree. The most difficult part of planting this tree was the location I had chosen. I desperately needed shade on the front of my home. Unfortunately for me, the soil was compacted and with more stones than I would have liked. Between the soil conditions and the July heat, it took me several days to get a hole sizable enough for an over-sized tree. Once I finally accomplished that, planting a 6 foot tree with a Grow Sack was a piece of cake. I also used the Root Rocket Fertilizer as directed. I’m pleased to say that this beauty made it through our Southwestern PA Zone 6 winter. It is thriving and has oodles of leaf buds starting to pop out. Super pleased with this company and highly recommend them.
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.
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
