    How long does it take for Honey Locust to mature ?

    animals like both seed pods and leaves, but this is Arizona. Unlike locust trees, our honey mesquite spreads out, not up. No matter how I prune the ones in the garden, branches will grow out and down. Another factor is mistletoe. In Mexico, during droughts ranchers will infect mesquite with desert mistletoe to use it as cattle feed. while it also infects other trees, only from mesquite is it considered safe for non-pregnant cattle. Please check before feeding. Javelina will eat it, or at least the berries.
