Honey Locust Tree Has Not Shown Leaves By Mid-May

Question From: F. Stein - WISCONSIN
Q: I live in southern Wisconsin. I have a huge honey locust tree that has not shown leaves yet. It is May 16, 2020.

A: Due to unseasonably cold weather, trees are a bit late leafing out this year. Give your tree more time. If newly emerging buds froze, trees have latent buds that emerge so be patient. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
