Honeylocust are medium to large woody trees. The leaves are alternate and may be singly or doubly compound. Native trees usually have stiff, branched thorns and long (8-18") brown, leathery pods containing seeds about the size of a watermelon seed. Some varieties are fruitless. Some varieties are thornless.
