Wooden pole prices are set based on the quality of wood and locations they’re being shipped to. The price also changes depending on if you want old-growth or new-growth timber.
The type of soil in your yard can also affect the price, as well as the size and weight of logs in your order! Lowland soils are moist and often acidic, which speeds up decomposition. Sandy soils are drier than lowland soils but still have plenty of nutrients for plant growth!
The lower end of the lumber market is most common in new construction and remodeling. Lumber prices vary wildly depending on the season and demand for the wood. Pole prices will be very little when demand is high, and quite high when demand drops.
