Fast growing, nitrogen-fixing tree with one of the hardest, most rot-resistant woods in North America. Black Locust fence posts can last for decades. They thrive in the poorest soil and are one of the best for re-establishing forest on disturbed sites. Potential for high value coppicing, they regrow rapidly from root suckers. Beautiful, fragrant blossoms come out in June, and are one of the very best nectar sources for bees. Originally native to the Appalachians, but now naturalized throughout the East. Cold stratify seeds before planting. 40 seeds
