Q.Can you transplant a black locust sucker to a container?

Zone Idalou, TX 79329 | Grangi added on October 10, 2019 | Answered

We have been required by our landlord to pull up or destroy the black locust suckers in our yard, but I would like to save some of them by transplanting to a container. Is that possible? Please advise. Thank you!

Sure, you can grow trees in containers. This one will need a very large one, but it can be done.
