Gleditsia inermis 'Shademaster'
60 feet high x 50 feet wide
‘Shademaster’ Honeylocust is one of the most popular thornless honeylocusts on the market today. It forms a graceful vase- to oval-shaped outline of its canopy. The pinnately compound, green leaflets are very light and airy which provide great dappled shade for us humans. Very tolerant of our alkaline soils. Just like the species, Shademaster is late to leaf out in the spring and goes dormant early in autumn—a great characteristic considering Wyoming’s unforgiving spring and autumn weather events. Expect anywhere from 4’–6′ of growth/year.
