Can't comment on Black Locust as stove wood but it makes a superb open fire fuel.
I downed a bunch of BL the winter before last in an effort to release a struggling Aspen grove as a means to encourage grouse habitat. I abhor downing healthy trees but the BL in this particular location developed a nearly monoculture situation.
I planted thousands of trees back in the middle 70's, including BL, and they are sight to behold today.
