I understand the frustration of dealing with an endless mess like that. Is the tree a vigorous self-seeder?


Wow, that is a lot of pods! We have a few, but not that many. My biggest challenge is the massive Oak leaves. I'm trying a slightly different method this year of raking some and relying on the Northwest winds to blow the ones in the back into the woods. It seems to be working. ;-)

Wow. As I pick up leaves and needles in my garden the chore seems to never end. There is such a difference between leaves that quickly break down, and thick waxy ones that do not. These pods are on a whole other level! How many Honeylocust do you have?

LOREE — We have three trees but only two get pods. It seemed like we never had seedlings, not like with the Sugar Maple. But last summer I felt like I was pulling tiny Locust seedlings from all over the garden.

BETH — Letting the wind solve the problem is a great solution.

KRIS P. — I didn't use to think the Locust self-0seeded much but it seems to be doing it a lot more. Maybe it's another consequence of climate change.
