Planted some found seeds which I had marked, the marker label faded, I don't have a clue what I thought they were...... here's a few pics. Seems to be a quick growing tree of some sort, very vibrant and fast growing getting up to about 5 ft. since spring planting.

Maybe a locust? Alas, I am terrible at plant ID outside my familiar local knowledge area.

This is a locust tree for sure.   I planted honey locust and black locust this year and this looks just like the black locust.   I planted seedlings no more than a 1 ft tall.  The honey locust has a bright almost yellow leaves that are much smaller than the black.       

This looks more like the black locust seedlings...the black locust also has more of a reddish bark like this. 


Regards, Scott

Thanks all! That reconnected the dots in my head and I recalled picking up seed at a local park from what I thought were honey locust trees, though I don't recall they had the big thorns.
