Abstract:

This progress report is on service tests of fenceposts, untreated or treated with preservative. The earliest test installations were started in 1908, and new tests have been added in succeeding years. The service records cover a wide variety of post species, 12 methods of treatment, and 73 different preservatives or preservative combinations. Actual or estimated life figures are shown for test installations where 10 percent or more of the posts had failed at the time of the last inspection.
