trees with thorns
I hope someone can help me. Yesterday I was clearing vines and brush from the back of our yard and came upon all these torture like trees with thorns. Well of course I was stabbed by a number of these thorns and one was embedded in my ankle on the inside where that bone is. It was in there a few hours before I discovered what it was ( thought it was a blister). Pulled it out- bled- became very swollen and extremely painful. Can't walk- its that bad. I read your forum from 2005 about trees with thorns and everyone says its a Honey Locust, but the leaves are not like that and the thorns are everywhere on the bloody thing and they are not that tall. I'm worried this thing is some posioness tree. Any other suggestions? I'm in upstate NY zone 5 near a river. I hate them and want them all dead!
