Native to North America (from Mexico to Canada), honey locust is a large, spiny, rapidly growing tree. Honey locust has been promoted and planted as a fodder tree and garden ornamental, however, it has the ability to form dense, spiny thickets that can out-compete native vegetation, provide a haven for pests, and injure stock and humans. 

Honey locust is currently limited in distribution in the Wide Bay Burnett to North Burnett Regional Council and South Burnett Regional Council and is aimed for eradication under the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Biosecurity Strategy 2017-2022.
