Title: Fence Posts for Southern Farms
Author: Muntz, H. H.;

Description: Of the more common woods native to the South, the heartwood of osageorange (bois d'arc), black locust, red mulberry, cedar, and baldcypress is most desirable and makes good fence posts without any preservative treatment. The heartwood of other southern tree species, and all sapwood is much less durable and will give only a few years of service when used for fence posts unless treated with a preservative. When properly treated, however, there is little to choose between different species
