Very timely, indeed!   I planted a Sunburst Locust last year in the parking strip out in the front.  This year, it has developed one of those co-cominant leaders



Not trying to get in the middle of Dan's good advice here, but on Locust, multiple leaders are normal.  That is, if the plant has reached it's needed branching height.  In a curb area, that may be 8 to 9 feet.  It will at that point , in order to achieve it's normal form , start to show a much more lateral growth habit, in which it forms many growing tips with none really very dominant.  For this reason Honey Locust tends to gain height relitivly slowly.
