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.
