Growth and Yield in Shipmast Locust on Long Island and Its Relative Resistance to Locust Borer Injury
A comprehensive study of the shipmast and the common locust shows that the former is more resistant to the locust borer and longer lived than the latter. The growth rate of the shipmast locust in the Central States compares very favorably with that of the common locust. In brief, the shipmast locust appears to be a tree of considerable merit and it probably will be much more widely planted when its merits become better known and when planting stock becomes generally available.
