We have an area where the pods fall (from a tree on the fence line with a neighbor)that we like to keep mowed so we usually pick them up and toss to the edge of the woods or to the goats across the fence.  This year I thought it would be just as easy to put them in a box and ship if anyone is interested?  It's honey locust  the one with the big big thorns. 

Give it some serious thought before saying yes as some folks really hate this tree as much as permies may love it.

They are for free and just in the states.

Check out the links at the bottom of this page called 'similar threads' for more information on honey locust.

They've been on the ground all winter now...no one asked for any back in october when I posted so I didn't pick them up...I'm mowing over them and it looks like many of them have bug holes  through the pod into the seed.

I'll try  to pick up some fresh ones in the fall and post again here when I do.

I have 30 acres of tote berry and mesquites so another thorn plant might as well with all the cacti.  Diversity one my land is a lot of pricks for the vegetation.  I just wonder how well it will grown on a caliche rock with little water on my part.

I suggest huckleberry pie. But the only thing on the gluten free menu is this tiny ad:
