Street Keeper columnar honeylocust
Gleditsia triacanthos f. inermis 'Draves'
This thornless cultivated example of honeylocust features a tight, narrow form that has long been lacking in urban tolerant varieties. The ascending branch structure gives Street Keeper a canopy that is only half as wide as other cultivars. Foliage is deeper green than other selections. In the fall their feathery foliage turns an outstanding gold, and will require no raking because of their small leaf size. Their rapid growth rate and extreme toughness make this tree a sure bet.
Vigorous and adaptable, these trees can be grown in almost any condition
