This tree is located in Micke Grove Regional Park in San Joaquin County, CA. Several questions. Tree ID of course. Trunk - is this natural or the result of ? As you can see, the seeds from the seed pods were plucked out by a squirrel or bird save for a few. Of the few I was able to find, how best to propagate them? Thank you!

Black Locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) Yes, that is the natural habit of the trunk. Considered a non-native invasive in some areas.
