The New Mexico Locust are in full bloom on Mt. Lemmon, which is a prominent understory tree in spruce-fir, fir, and mixed conifer forests. New Mexico locust has beautiful flowers that can brighten whole hillsides in the spring so it is sometimes planted as an ornamental. This use, however, is limited because of its small size, tendency to root sprout, and thorny stems. (U.S. Forest Service)
