    I don't get in to too much locust for firewood, though not by choice.

    My locust experience is based on the ones on my property.

    A previous owner decided some years ago to play a cruel joke on posterity by planting them damned things there.

    Firewood avengers, they are. My chimney's in clear view of them and they take it upon themselves to bite me back in retalliation for all the trees I've slayed over the years. OUCH!!!

    The two on the left look like honey locust to me. There are thorn-less varieties. I didn't do very good in Woodies 1&2 in college though. :)
