Around here, locust is often used for posts, but I doubt anybody gets 30 or 40 years out of one.
30 or 40 years is about the life expectancy of pressure treated lumber in direct ground contact.
Before pressure treating, we used to use creosote on posts to make them last longer in the ground, but I don't think you can buy that anymore.
