Red Pine

Safe and Durable 

Red Pine (Pinus resinosa) has long history of safe and dependable use as utility poles, fence posts, and building materials. Approved by the REA, ANSI, and CSA for use as poles, it is the species of choice for many RECs and investor owned utilities throughout the Midwest and Eastern North America. Its climbability is superior to other species of pine poles.

State-of-the-Art Wood Preservation
Bell Lumber & Pole uses a pressure treating system for Red Pine poles, using pentachlorophenol, a naturally biodegradable oil-based preservative which repels water, improves dimensional stability, and reduces checking and splitting. Red Pine penta poles and fence posts are clean-surfaced and not subject to fastener corrosion. Our process plant uses a closed-loop containment facility, ensuring an environment-friendly operation, recognized by the EPA as a model facility.

Certified Quality Control
In addition to Bell Lumber & Pole's stringent quality control process throughout the manufacturing process, our plant is certified by the Wood Quality Control (WQC) inspection program.
