Technical Specification

Black Locust is a very hard and strong wood, competing with Hickory (Carya genus) as the strongest and stiffest domestic timber, but with more stability and rot-resistance. Although it shares a similar name with Honey Locust, the two aren’t in the same genus, (Robinia and Gleditsia, respectively). Black Locust is heavier, harder, and has more of a green or yellow tinge, while Honey Locust tends to have a warmer orange or red tint.
