Default Honey Locus ?

I have found some trees that have what looks like the same bark as Honey Locus but have no thorns. Is that a male/female difference in the trees.

Yep, I leave the thornless ones on my place, or ones with few thorns. Some are just absolutely loaded with thorns.

I will have to pay more attention to see if the thorn less ones produce seed pods. If they do I will leave them standing for the deer.

Is a thornless honeylocust a natural occurrence or is that an escaped cultivar of the thornless varieties that people plant in yards and parks?

Natural, when I start looking in an area on my farm I can usually find one. I really can't say if 1 in 10, or 1 in 100 are thornless?

Oh yes, they can be propagated from cuttings.
