usually cut some lodge pole, some douglas fir.
the grazzing association use my corrals to cut out and we did have time to go get poles so I bought those green treated they should last for years.
have put up green and dry poles that have last 25 or so years. Some dry poles won't last 3.
heck the old head catch when I was relly little was poles . with a long pole that moved them open and closed.
