Title: Hardwood Fence Posts Give Good Service

Author: Carpenter, B. E.; Bouler, T. P.;

Date: 1962

Source: Mississippi State Pub

Description: Very few tree species make naturally durable fence posts. Osage-orange, mulberry, black locust, cypress, and some species of cedar are known for the good service they give. But in no case are their names a guarantee. Only the heartwood of these species possesses adequate durability .
