Locust Trees

Asked July 24, 2018, 8:42 PM EDT

Can a new Thornless Honey Locust tree be planted in the same space as the old one was before it was removed?

Prince George's County Maryland

You did not mention why the honeylocust declined. If the stump and tree roots were not ground out, you may need to plant at least 3 feet from the old stump/roots for ample growing/ rooting space and good drainage.
If all roots were removed, you can plant nearby but not generally recommended to plant in the same spot unless you have space constraints.
