Andrea, I have gardened with hostas in woods with black locusts - other than 
invasive roots, the hosta did all right. The trees are messy, with many root 
sprouts as noted in other messages. Yes, taking the roots out by hand does 
stop them  briefly , but the mark of black locusts is persistence. You have 
to work to manage them so they won't manage you.
