Pole Utilization in New England
Abstract:Important changes in the wood species used for poles have been taking place in New England. The virtual extinction of the native chestnut by disease and the reduced supply of the local white cedars, along with changing demands for strength and other properties, have directed users to other woods. Western red cedar and southern pines are the newcomers. Preservative treatment is winning appreciation because of its ultimate economy.
