Yes, it's great for BTU's (one of the best) but I never burn it. When I decide to or have to take out some black locust on my property the go to fence posts. Why fence posts? Well that's all will let my chainsaw give to a black locust. A single tree will completely ruin a chain on a chainsaw. I can't say I've ever sawed a good dry one and not seen sparks fly like hitting a piece of metal.
Great fence posts 50-75 years easy.
