We source latvian redwood pine stakes that have been pressure treated with creosote at less than 28% moisture content. Creosoted materials have proven themselves as extremely durable and a useful component in creating a long lasting fence. Creosote is toxic to fungi, insects and marine borers and also acts as a water repellant. Creosote stakes can be used in conjunction with reclaimed telegraph pole strainers, another time-honoured favourite with farmers.
