I had heard of locust but never knew how rot resistant and what great firewood it is til i joined FHC. Never processed any either. These were from an old fence we pulled out at my friends yesterday. He may reuse them, if not, firewood. I was surprised how little it had decayed. Im familiar with Eastern red cedar and white oak in terms of rot resistance, just not locust. Learn something new all the time! Thanks FHC!
