Cedar Posts

Exceptionally straight plantation grown timber – we use this timber because of its strength and durability in much of our thatch roof construction. Its consistent diameter ensures uniform strength throughout each pole, and saves on dead weight in roof construction. Safari’s eucalyptus poles, with their wide range of sizes are perfect for any project ranging from fences and trellises to full roof construction. Complete specifications upon request, including compression and deflection statistics etc.
