Help identifying a tree

Hi All

Trying to figure out what kind of tree this is. Any help would be appreciated as I have hundreds of seed pods on my lawn and wondering if I should save the seeds.

Here are the photos


thank you in advance

Honey Locust, Gleditsia triacanthos. A very commonly planted shade/timber tree.

second link, at the link below, says:

This species is a thorny, woody legume tree that has a tendency to be an aggressive colonizer. Root suckers and abundant seed production ...

which loosely translates into 'invasive' .. in some areas ..

if your lawn is covered with pods.. i suspect you have many seedlings in the area.. and wonder what in the world you want to save more seed.. lol ...

do whatever makes you happy ..
