This tentative map is based on our own research. It may have limited data on Canada and/or Mexico, and there is some subjectivity in our assignment of plants as introduced vs. expanded. Read more in this blog post.

Honeylocust has been widely planted outside its native range and has escaped cultivation in many places. Because, for the most part, these establishments are widespread and contiguous with its native range, we have marked them as expanded. Some populations in the west may be isolated enough that they could instead be marked introduced.
