We have set out below prices for the most common chestnut posts – a peeled and pointed chestnut post, also known as a chestnut stake, round or cleft, as it comes out of the stack. If you want , for example, all rounds or to select the most straight posts then there is an extra 20% payable . These posts are round, half round, or quarter section and measure approx 2″to 3″ in diameter .
We can supply unpeeled chestnut posts – please contact us for more information.
We can also quote for pergola poles and larger chestnut posts – for example the other day a customer wanted 12ft long chestnut posts with a diameter of 8 to 10 inches and we were able to oblige . If it is the right time of year to cut, we will probably be able to help you with your request.
For chestnut paling fencing , we recommend that posts should be at least 18″ longer than the height of the fence , but for fencing 4’6″ high or more, then we recommend posts be 24″ longer. We recommend that posts are driven every two to three yards, but for fencing 4’6″ high or more, we recommend every 2 yards. We also suggest you have struts at the beginning , end, every 50 metres and on corners. In some cases you might want to consider straining posts ( round strainer posts) at the beginning and end- please contact us for a price on those.
PLEASE NOTE we are not able to supply bundles of chestnut pales at the moment .
