Thoughts on honey locust problems

4 months ago

I've always loved honey locusts for their form and leaves that don't make too much of a mess. I was planning on painting a couple at our new house, although the more I look I've been seeing a lot of things about honey locust diseases due to over planting. In my current neighborhood there are not a lot of honey locusts (and I've always thought of them as a trouble-free tree, I had one of my old house I never had any problems), but I'm also hesitant to plant a tree that is going to cause problems. I'm still traumatized from all the ash trees being cut down in our area a number of years ago.
I know that no tree is without issues, although I'm worried that honey locusts will be the next big tree problem. Any thoughts?
