(Black Locust - 02) Unfortunately, the black locust is considered to be an invasive species.  Their beautiful hanging flower clusters with their strong fragrance are believed by some people to compete with native species for pollinating bees.  We have lived here at Sleepy Hollow Lake since January 1980, and have seen absolutely no evidence of this; if anything, the black locust are being crowded out by native species.  From our perspective, we just enjoy the beauty of God's creation.
