Pine Timber, Posts & Poles (Pinus Radiata)

Photo: PolesThe most commonly used timber in New Zealand, Pine is used for all outdoor applications such as fencing, decking, landscaping, cattle and sheep yards, and general building purposes. Our pine is locally grown on the hills of Marlborough, and nearly all milled, dried and treated on site.

We stock a range of posts and poles from 1.8m - 6.0m, in various diameters. We have a great Post Peeler, and are now able to peel, point, cut to length and treat your postwood for you. To find out more about this, please visit our Services page.

Pine is classed as a softwood, and is susceptible to rot, fungus and insect attack. For this reason, it is not only economical, but environmentally sensible to treat the timber with a preservative chemical. This extends the life of the timber from roughly 1 year in it's untreated state, to 40 + years. Treating ensures that our forests have time to replenish themselves.
