Abstract

In the allochthonous dendroflora of Sarajevo and its surroundings, the genus Gleditsia L. is represented only by the North American species Gleditsia triacanthos L. - honey locust or throrny locust. Several introduced species of this genus are grown in warmer areas of Europe. These species are distinguished by aesthetic values and a wide ecological amplitude. They are suitable for introduction into the urban green areas of Sarajevo and other urbasn agglomerations in appropriate habitats. Gledotsia triacanthos „Sunburst" particularly stands out in terms of aesthetic values.
