(Black Locust - 07) The leaves of the black locust are described as being: alternate, pinnately compound with between 7 and 19 leaflets, and grow to lengths of 8 to 14 inches. What appear to be individual leaves are really the leaflets. The actual leaf has a long central green stem with a terminal leaflet and several pairs of leaflets that usually grow opposite one another along the stem, which can be more easily seen in the next photo.
