Farm and Ranch
Our posts and poles put others out to pasture.
With a full assortment, we're your best source for round wood fence posts and poles for any application. From 2-inch to 8-inch diameters, and from 6.5-feet to 30-feet lengths, we have whatever the project requires.
Our Repel® brand posts are pressure treated to .40 pounds per cubic foot (8 feet and shorter) or .60 pcf (10 feet and longer) as required by the American Wood-Preservers' Association (AWPA) standards. We can also treat heavier retentions as needed (.80 pcf or 2.50 pcf). Great Southern Wood proudly offers and stands behind a 30-year warranty on our natural posts.
Our line posts are available in diameters as small as 2.5 inches—and are perfect for barbed wire or non-climb fences. The flat sides of our half round, faced-one-side or faced-two-sides posts are excellent for attaching YellaWood® brand pressure treated corral boards (rough sawn or surfaced) to surround your property or to fence in your livestock, making a practical yet beautiful addition to any rural farm.

CONSUMER SAFETY INFORMATION
INORGANIC ARSENICAL PRESSURE-TREATED WOOD (including CCA, ACA, and ACZA)
This wood has been preserved by pressure treatment with an EPA-registered pesticide containing inorganic arsenic to protect it from insect attack and decay. Wood treated with inorganic arsenic should be used only where such protection is important. Inorganic arsenic penetrates deeply into and remains in the pressure treated wood for a long time. However, some chemical may migrate from treated wood into surrounding soil over time and may also be dislodged from the wood surface upon contact with skin. Exposure to inorganic arsenic may present certain hazards. Therefore, the following precautions should be taken both when handling the treated wood and in determining where to use or dispose of the treated wood.
USE SITE PRECAUTIONS:
All sawdust and construction debris should be cleaned up and disposed of after construction. Do not use treated wood under circumstances in which the preservative may become a component of food or animal feed. Examples of such sites would be use of mulch from recycled arsenic-treated wood, cutting boards, counter tops, animal bedding, and structures or containers for storing animal feed or human food. Only treated wood that is visibly clean and free of surface residue should be used for patios, decks and walkways. Do not use treated wood for construction of those portions of beehives which may come into contact with honey. Treated wood should not be used where it may come into direct or indirect contact with drinking water, except for uses involving incidental contact such as docks and bridges.
Dispose of treated wood by ordinary trash collection. Treated wood should not be burned in open fires or in stoves, fireplaces, or residential boilers because toxic chemicals may be produced as part of the smoke and ashes. Treated wood from commercial or industrial use (e.g., construction sites) may be burned only in commercial or industrial incinerators or boilers in accordance with State and Federal regulations. Avoid frequent or prolonged inhalation of sawdust from treated wood. When sawing, sanding and machining treated wood, wear a dust mask. Whenever possible, these operations should be performed outdoors to avoid indoor accumulations or airborne sawdust from treated wood. When power-sawing and machining, wear goggles to protect eyes from flying particles. Wear gloves when working with the wood. After working with the wood, and before eating, drinking, toileting, using tobacco products, or other activities that may result in bodily absorption of particles, wash exposed areas thoroughly. Because preservatives or sawdust may accumulate on clothes, they should be laundered before reuse. Wash work clothes separately from other household clothing.
