    About the same as most the others have said. I'd take the Locust first. Then Ash. If it's spit already, the Hickory would be great. It can be very stringy to split though. Maple depends on the species. Sugar Maple is awesome firewood, while Silver or Red is good for shoulder season, but doesn't give long burns. 12 month seasoned Oak would not be on the menu.

    Hickory
    Locust
    Ash
    Maple
    Oak

    My first year hickory seasoned about the best behind white ash. If I had to choose two woods with only a year to season them it would be hickory and ash.

    I'm guess that happens when you have to much locust, lol.
