(Robinia pseudoacacia) This very fast growing tree has many uses. It is a nitrogen fixer and a good choice to plant with Black Walnut or Chestnut in a woodlot. In a woodlot or as a windbreak, plant the trees 10 feet apart. It grows too big (30' 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. Flowers are excellent bee forage. 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. 1-1/2 to 3 foot seedlings.
