Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia'

The bright yellow foliage throughout the growing season makes this tree stand out like a shimmering beacon. This oval-shaped tree, to 40' tall, is widely adapted to heat or cold. It is a black locust with pretty compound leaves, white flowers and thorns on the smaller wood. This is a very fast-growing tree that has many uses - it's a nitrogen fixer and a good choice to plant with Black walnut or Chestnut in a woodlot. The wood is famously rot resistant, and makes dense, long-burning firewood. Flowers are excellent bee forage. 

In a woodlot or as a windbreak, plant trees 10 feet apart. It grows too big (40' or more) to make a good hedge. Trees can begin to be thinned and harvested for firewood and rot resistant posts in 8 to 12 years. The thorny trees will send up root suckers which also grow into trees, even after a mature tree is cut. This way they replant themselves.
