I was lucky enough to find one that was about 20" with only a little rot in the middle. I don't like the trees though, they're taking over our pasture as we speak. Can't bushog them too well, cause they might poke holes in the tires.
D S, same in our area. Building inspector's around here are just getting updated info on locust as an a much more durable and stronger alternative than pt.
I love locust. It is said " would be the most valuable N.A. timber if not for the bark borer voids and scars". Shows you what some are taught, "invasive", yeah right. How about indigenous. Ironwood
We're wondering if we can get away with using it for sill plates in houses. I'd rather have that than PT, but I doubt you would find a building inspector that would cooperate. We have used timberlok screws with great success, and the air nailer seems to work ok too.
I made large garden boxes with black locust. The seasoned logs I needed to pre drill the nail holes to keep from splitting. I didn't have any trouble milling it, Kbeitz. What was the trouble you had?
Were you running junkyard special blades?
