Lumber from power poles.

I posted to this section because we did use a truck and dump trailer. Near where I live they replaced a bunch of large wooden poles for high tension lines. A friend wanted them and a particular land owner didn’t want the old poles so it was a help yourself thing. I took my 2025r and helped him load them on his trailer with my forks. He kept saying how light weight they were. When I saw them I thought no way I’m picking those up but they were 50 tp 70 years old and very dry so I was able to load them.

He hauled them to a sawmill owned by the Amish and today I helped him load the lumber and watched him mill a few. This stuff was all cedar and made some excellent lumber.

Wow, Cedar power poles. All we have are Osmose treated yellow pine poles here.
