Black Locust

Hamilton Township, New Jersey 08690, United States

Created By: Unity College


Black Locust (Robinia psuedoacacia) is a medium sized tree. They are part of this tour, because they are common in several places in the park. The bark has large ridges, and the leaves have many smaller leaflets (smaller leaves attached to one stem, which form one big leaf). Some of these trees are used by deer to rub their antlers. This tree is exotic.

In the park, Black Locust grows near the parking lot, as well as on hillsides. The trees at this spot grow between the parking lot and the gravel road.
