My brother's girlfriend had this tree go down in her yard 3 weeks ago. I don't have room for any more wood, but I just couldn't resist. I have whacked lots and lots of locust. The biggest I have ever cut was 12 inches at the base. This beast is 22 inches diameter at the base. My brother splits 'em with the Ochsenkopf aluminum wedge, and the sledge hammer. This wood is pristine, no rot. This is the finest load of firewood I ever have gotten, and I have gotten many, many loads. My brother also got a truck load out of this giant locust. Locust is hard to cut, even with a big chain saw. Very hard and dense. Takes much longer to cut than oak. 21 percent moisture content.
