Thornless Honeylocust is an attractive shade tree. It has pinnately or bipinnately compound leaves. The numerous small leaflets are medium green in color and give the tree a fine texture.

Thornless Honeylocust has been widely planted in residential and urban settings. Prefers a good fertile loam soil with ample moisture. Adaptable to a wide range of soils and environmental conditions.
