Product Review, Woodshield Posts – The End of Toxic CCA Pine?

Farm Learning with Tim Thompson | 20 June 2020 | Back to All Videos
This week I review a great Australian product from Woodshield. Pine fence posts are known for lightness, ease of use and price. Durability unfortunately comes at a heavy price, with environmentally damaging chemicals used to treat them and stop early rot. Woodshield may have overcome this with a coating of recycled plastic polymer. Combining the lightness and strength of wood with the durability of plastic, these posts promise the best of both worlds. In this video I put them through their paces, using machinery to install posts in rocky ground, building a box end assembly and then filling a post full of staples, screws and wire then leaving it in a dam for a few weeks to see if it holds up.
