I don’t think you’ll gain much by planing the Black Locust while it’s green.

I think that cutting it 5/4 would be fine for most deck applications. After all, the box stores sell 5/4 PT decking and it’s 1” thick when planed and sold… Just make sure your use of it provides adequate support, preferabbly at leas 2×8 on 24” centers, 16” centers would be better…

Good Luck.
