Looking for black locust seeds & posts in Tioga County, PA vicinity

Hi, I just moved to Tioga County, PA and am looking for a some harvestable black locust trees for fenceposts. Having browsed this site, I am now also interested in seeds from "straighter than average" trees, as the silvopasture idea seems to make good sense.

Does anyone in the vicinity have excess black locust which I might be able to harvest for a dollar or two per 8'-long post, and from which I might be able to take some seeds?

Thanks much,

Nathan Smelser

Doesn't seem like it'd be too hard to find some local stands of locust in Tioga Co, PA.

A potential future source of "improved" black locust is Twisted Tree Farm nursery just north of you in Spencer, NY.  Akiva is propagating rooted cuttings (and eventually seedlings) from seed orchard material that was imported from Hungary a couple of years ago.   Their facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/Akivatreeplanter

Great!  Thanks for the tip!

Yep, I have found a few real close, though I am still working on getting permission to harvest adequate quantities!  Longer term, I like what you're promoting here, and it sure makes sense to integrate trees (including black locust) into our place here.
