CCA-TREATED SOUTHERN YELLOW PINE
Tapered versus Non-Tapered Wood Posts
Tapered posts are peeled by a high speed machine that follows the contour
of the log. The finished post has the characteristics of each piece of wood.
Because the tree is tapered, the post is tapered. These posts are measured by
the small end. The advantage of the tapered post is you get more wood for
the money. A non-tapered post is a log pushed through a spinning ring which
gives a smooth, consistent post. The lack of taper makes this post about 15%
lighter than the comparable traditional post, making them less expensive to
ship and more uniform in size. Do not confuse these with peeler cores which
are a by-product of plywood production and should be avoided.
Other sizes available - call for pricing and availability. ACQ treated posts available on request.
