Forest to Fence Line

Keystone Fence Supplies controls the entire manufacturing process of their agricultural fence posts. This allows them to provide a top of the line product.

The process starts by selecting southern yellow pine trees in the forest. Keystone Fence Supplies then cuts the trees to length and runs them through a specialized post peeler. After being examined for quality, they are set aside to air season until dry.

The fence posts are then sent to a CCA wood preserving facility. After pressure treatment, the fence posts are ready to be installed in agricultural fencing applications.

Loblolly Pine vs. Other Pine Species

Loblolly Pine is one of several pines native to the Southeastern United States. The wood industry classifies Loblolly Pine as a southern yellow pine. Loblolly Pine is the preferred choice for fence post manufacturing because it is easy to peel, easy to treat, and the strength characteristics exceed those of other popular tree species. Other species of trees also have symmetrical knots which cause the fence post to fail while driving it into the ground during installation.
