DescriptionIn 1953, a study was begun at the Delta Branch of the Southern Forest Experiment Station to determine whether fence posts cut from Delta hardwoods can be treated satisfactorily by cold-soaking in pentacholorophenol. Species included in the test were overcup oak, red oak (water oaks) sweetgum, tupelo, privet, boxelder, hackberry, hickory, cedar elm, American elm, and bitter pecan. Most of the posts were from small overtopped trees which ordinarily die and are wasted before they become large enough for sawlogs. However, some vigorous privet and boxelder were cut in order to give more valuable trees room to grow.
