    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I recently acquired a piece of property and while clearing it I uncovered a really cool looking tree, about 20' tall, looks like an Acacia sp. me, But this is Wa. state so it is probably not an Acacia. The cool thing about this tree is that it has thorns over an inch long and it is kinda exotic looking... makes me think of something you would see in Africa. Its covered in seed pods right now and if anyone is interested i will make an effort to collect seeds as they mature. Just let me know (send me a pm)

    Sounds like a tree I'd want nothing to do with since there are already waaaay too many thorny things here in Tucson, Az's desert.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Sounds like a Black Locust to me If there are many saplings around the tree, no doubt it is Black Locust, that tree is a very prolific root sucker producer.
