Types of wood

The most popular types of wood used for fencing are:

  • Pine (redwood)
  • Spruce
  • Larch
  • Tropical woods
  • Oak

Spruce is the recommended raw material for cundy peeled posts. Spruce posts look better, are straighter and more resistant since they have fewer knots.

Pine is the best choice for machine rounded posts since the proportion of sapwood to be impregnated is higher with this type of wood. Pine also splits less and withstands extreme temperature fluctuations better.

Horse owners who would prefer untreated or natural enclosure fencing should choose hardwood. Tropical wood types have proven themselves in this role. Even when untreated and in contact with the ground, tropical woods are very robust and have a useful life of up to 25 years. We use only tropical woods from sustainable cultivation.
