Honey Locusts
Blue Course Drive

All these leaves have now dropped, but these photos show how beautiful the Honey Locusts were this fall. Honey Locusts often are planted in parking lot islands and sidewalk tree squares. Planted in a group like these, they serve as a windbreak or shelterbelt, providing shelter from the wind and being helpful for erosion control. They cast a light shade, and their flowers are greenish-yellow and fragrant. Source: United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service
