The stakes and posts of Phoenix Enterprises are milled in Oregon or British Columbia. They are sorted for quality and suitability. Knots, mold, off-cuts are all sorted out. Phoenix sells 100% application suitability, with 99% drivability.
Treating is never to “refusal”. It must meet industry specifications for application and use. The wood is pre-dried to allow for maximum chemical penetration allows to meet the highest industry performance standards.
There are “cheaper” ways to provide agricultural wood products, but not “better” ways.
Phoenix stands by its products and its performance. There are no “short-cuts”, and “cheaper wood”, just levels of quality standards.
