No interest in burls here, I just noticed the locust logs that have them are better logs.

I don't have any black locust in my area. But with you guys mentioning how it is super rot resistant, yet it rots out in the heart makes me think of the white cedar around here. Another very rot resistant species, and it does the same thing. It is rare to find a cedar over 10"  that isn't hollow.
