Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.

The Honey Locust, scientifically known as Gleditsia triacanthos, is a deciduous tree native to North America. Here are some key features and information about the Honey Locust:

  1. Appearance: The Honey Locust is a medium to large-sized tree that can reach heights of 30 to 70 feet (9 to 21 meters). It has a spreading, open canopy with delicate, fern-like foliage.

  2. Thorny Varieties: Some varieties of Honey Locust have thorns on their branches, while others are thornless. Thornless varieties are often preferred for landscaping purposes.

  3. Leaf Characteristics: The leaves of the Honey Locust are pinnately compound, meaning they are composed of multiple leaflets arranged along a central stem. Each leaflet is small and oval-shaped, giving the tree a light and airy appearance.
