Gleditsia triacanthos var. inermis 'Skycole'
40-50 feet high x 30-35 feet wide
This is a stately and unusual variety with a distinctive pyramid form (unlike other honeylocusts that are spreading to rounded). Thornless and essentially fruitless (no pods), this tree develops a sturdy trunk with uniform branching. Its leaves are small, pinnately compound green migrating to a golden yellow in autumn. A great shade tree for those who want filtered light to come through.
