Tips for growing black locust from seed collected from desirable parent trees

Attachments:

I'm glad you posted about Black  Locust, as I was slightly confused about growing it here in NY. I read that it was an evasive species, but I've seen it posted for sale. I'm guessing if it's properly maintained, the state is ok with it. 

I believe the official status of Black Locust is discussed in other posts, but the way it was explained to me by a state official a few years back (subject to change) is that as a "restricted species" it can't be introduced in to "new areas".  The interior Adirondack Park was given as an example.  I struggle to think of any other corner of the state where locust hasn't already been well-naturalized for a century or more.  

Yes I read the definition in your love story, and the "New area" is kinda what confused me. If it grows in my area, but not on my property, am I introducing it to a new area? I guess technically I could be, but it could be in the woods next door and I don't know it.
