Q.What is this Tree?

Zone 01002 | shschill added on October 3, 2019 | Answered

I hope someone can help me identify this tree, even though this is a gardening site. Is this a “Honey Locust” or a “Black Locust”? I am adding photos. I do not see thorns on the trunk, but some on very small branches. Also, I have included a photo of leaves

It does appear to be Gleditsia, but not the Honey locust. Probably a more ornamental cultivar with a low thorn count.
