Ordering truckload quantities
Different treatments produce poles of different weights. Instead of having separate weight tables for each treament, full truckloads are figured by the cubic feet of wood. To determine the quantity of poles that will compose a truckload, multiply the number of poles needed at a particular size by the corresponding number of cubes from the cubic foot table.

*Approximate cubes per truckload:
Penta: 850 cubes
CCA: 800 cubes

ET: 775

Treatment specifications
When ordering treated wood poles, the following should be part of your specifications:

  1. Specify treatment (CCA, CCA ET, or Penta)
  2. Specify retention if Penta (8lb., 10lb., 12lb.).
  3. Poles shall meet the requirements of the latest revision of ANSI 05.1 "Specifications and Dimensions for Wood Poles."
  4. Poles will be treated in accordance with the requirement of the American Wood-Preservers' Association standard C1 "All Timber Products - preservative treatment by pressure process," and C4, "Poles - preservative treament by pressure processes."
  5. Specify any framing needs.
