Robinia pseudoacacia is a quick-growing, extremely tough, loose, open tree with compound leaves which drop in pieces, creating little debris. It's fragrant white flowers are beloved by bees. In Europe it is often planted alongside streets and in parks, especially in large cities, because it tolerates pollution well. There is also an essential oil obtained from the flowers, used in perfumery.
Black locust has nitrogen-fixing bacteria on its root system; for this reason it can grow on poor soils and is an early colonizer of disturbed areas. Black Locust is highly valued as firewood for wood-burning stoves; it burns slowly, with little visible flame or smoke, and has a higher heat content than any other species that grows widely in the Eastern United States, comparable to the heat content of anthracite.
