Honey Locust

Whilst on Brad and Lisa’s farm last week, as we strolled by their little creek, I couldn’t help but notice that they had several trees, some quite big, that had these extraordinary spikes. I had seen these before but each tree had sprouted these new spikes over the spring and they looked pretty impressive. These spikes were as strong as nails, you could not break them off but were as sharp as needles. I had never seen anything like them in Ireland. The tree is a Honey Locust and they are native to this part of the USA. I took a few pictures.
