Oh dear lord those trees suck. Had two in our front yard growing up. One had thorns and the other didn't. Horrible on lawnmower tires and feet.

Try to find all the small limbs as well. Those things will cause flat tires on everything.

As many others have said, Honey Locust. I had dozens on my place in Tioga. I have a few that I left where my feeder is. Deer hang around it.

^^^THIS^^^

Cut it and burn it completely or it will regrow. We learned this the hard way when I was growing up. Before the days of using herbicides I’ve helped my dad and grandfather cut these things completely down only to have 10 more of them shoot up the following year.

I hate those **** things with a passion. They’ve made me bleed more than I care to recall. Satan invented them.

Don't get a thorn in your foot. My brother stepped on one once & just about lost his foot. Really screwed him up for a while.

Pistol got scratched by one and ended up with a staff infection. Probably cut a hundred animals before it hit her.

One of my cows went lame and I took her in to the vet. He pulled one of these thorns out of her hoof! Not between the hooves - in her hoof.
