Why plant Street Keeper® Honeylocust?

Are you looking for a medium sized shade tree with a quick growth rate that is low maintenance and on the slim side? We promise you aren't asking for too much! If so, the Street Keeper® Honeylocust is the tree for you! In spring, dark green leaflets appear - much darker than other varieties of Honeylocust - and provide a beautiful, dappled shade for you to enjoy. By fall, the fern-like foliage turns a dazzling gold before falling and being swept away by the breeze - making clean up a cinch! With its narrow and tight growth habit, the Street Keeper® Honeylocust is truly a keeper in today's landscape - providing a unique shape no matter where planted!

Standing 150 feet from Abraham Lincoln while he delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, stands a lone Honey Locust tree referred to as the “witness tree”. Quietly listening after witnessing one of the worst battles in US history right beneath its feet where thousands of American soldiers lost their lives. This 160 year old veteran has lived longer than its 100 year expectancy and still stands alongside the Gettysburg National Cemetery today. Over the years saplings and seeds from this historic tree have been sold for fundraisers spreading some 1,600 descendants of the “witness tree” throughout the eastern United States.

How To Plant Street Keeper® Honeylocust

Looking to give a Street Keeper® Honeylocust its forever home? Then let's get planting! The Street Keeper® Honeylocust thrives in locations that offer full sun while offering adaptability to both dry and moist locations. That same adaptability applies to most soil types. This tree also offers tolerance to urban pollution and environmental salt, allowing this tree to be utilized almost anywhere your heart desires. Lest we forget to mention, due to the height the tree is capable of achieving, we advise against planting under power lines. Maintain normal care routines for watering, pruning, and fertilizing, and you will have one happy, healthy tree. So give it a go and let it grow!

How To Water

Planting your Street Keeper® Honeylocust is thirsty work, not just for you but for your tree as well! Keeping a steady schedule, watering at a minimum of twice a week for the first few years, will keep your tree strong and healthy.

How To Fertilize

When planting your Street Keeper® Honeylocust, this is when the first feeding will commence. Achieve this simply by adding fertilizer to the, site both in and on top of the planted location. Following the planting, we recommend applying fertilizer once in the fall before the start of dormancy, then again in the spring before the push of new growth. Keeping this process up until the tree is established will provide the best growing conditions possible.

How To Prune

In the formative years for your Street Keeper® Honeylocust, the best time to prune is in fall, after the foliage drops, or in spring before the push of new growth. Start by pruning dead, broken, or cross branches out. This will be beneficial, not only for the health of the tree, but it will also improve the aesthetic of the tree as it ages. Also, while still young, if you are looking to have a certain height of clearance under the tree, you can achieve this by removing any low hanging branches one or two at a time over a period of a few years, until the desired clearance is achieved.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our big trees, sizes XL and bigger, require expert delivery and care, that means our extra-large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to you. Ask Bower & Branch about planting services – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
