IMPERIAL HONEYLOCUST

Gleditsia triacanthos ‘Impcole’

 

Generally, this tree has done very well in the Cache Valley climate. It continues to be one one of the most popular trees in this area. Its open, airy habit provides adequate shade but still allows enough light through the canopy to keep grass or other plantings growing well under the tree. An attractive feature of this tree is the wispy or lacy appearance of the canopy. This variety is usually seedless. The Imperial is the most compact of Honeylocust.  Wide branch angles resist storm damage.
