Thanks for the quick reply. It's funny because I had ordered 20+ black locust trees to plant with my fruit trees for nitrogen etc. Along with other places around the property for harvesting for firewood.

Then, I realized that a lot of the trees that I cut down a year ago when we bought the place were probably some kind of locust. These are shoots coming back from where I had cut them down.

So, if these are black locust I might spend more time transplanting them vs buying from nurseries.

yeah, they are pretty easy to multiple via suckers.  Early on I started with seed, but don't have to anymore.  
 
There's no place like 127.0.0.1. But I'll always remember this tiny ad:
