These locusts are almost 2' in diameter and there are a lot of them.
They are covered with thick vines and very stringy and hard to split.
Sounds like they are worth the trouble though.
thanks for the valuable info.
DVC500 at last wrote:Once seasoned properly, Locust burns with the "Blue Ladies" . Its the best wood I have ever burned. Our property is wooded with about 50% of Locust, old growth, up to 2ft dia. Whatever trees get blown over from the wind storms, I buck up and let sit for a couple years. Then it goes right into the FireplaceXtrordinaire, with the Ash and Oak. The locust burns the hottest, pure blue flame. It does not produce a lot of ash either. Peel the bark off, if you can. It'll probably come off once its seasoned anyway.
