Been reading about “Robinia Pseudoacacia (Frisia)” on several websites about an unknown problem causing the death of these trees, even after twenty years and more,starting with early leaf drop and eventual death of the tree, anyone had experience of this? considering getting one but a bit unsure.

No direct recent experience,John, but with all the travelling up and down to London over the past months that we had to do, I couldn't help but notice a number of these lovely trees with dead branches and sparse leaves.

I had one in Kent and the main disadvantage is the wicked prickles they have. I loved the colour of its leaves, though, they looked like sunshine even on dull days. I couldn't have one in my present garden, though, as it's too windy and they have a habit of dropping branches, which are rather brittle.
