Sorry, accidentally uploaded an unrelated picture of a 4 point I saw during hunting seasonDidn’t split very easy, not straight grain. This was growing along a ditch, and had 25 years ago+ been pushed into a pile. No signs of being punky or any other rot. Bark mostly off of the pieces, so I can’t really compare to a living tree to use an app.

If it is locust, lucky me, I have 15 ish pieces of premium firewood.It’s very dense, like applewood. So maybe it is locust? Does locust split like ash? This was intertwined grain and it’s closed pore, that’s what had me confused is that it’s so dense but it looks like it grew very fast, and I don’t remember seeing pods from other locust trees, but maybe I missed them.
