Default Disposal of telephone poles

Where can a person get rid of telephone poles? I have 10-12 that I need to get rid of.

If they are in good shape, somebody might want them for landscaping or the like.

Check with your sale barn. I'm sure someone would like to have them for fence posts.

If they're in decent shape, sell or give them away. They work good for fence corner posts.

I wish you were closer, I would take them in a second.

I know someone who would be interested in them if you are giving away. Let me know.

Decent shape, not new by any means
I thought about using them for a loafing shed but decided I didnít need a second one.

I once saw some deer blinds that were built near the top of 4 poles placed in the ground. It was on a piece of property I was looking at just west of Morganmills, back in the 1980s.

If you don't get rid of them here, list them on Facebook marketplace or a similar site. They won't last very long.

I would suggest if you go this route make sure it’s a dark cloudy night. That black smoke can lay in the air for a long way. That is what I have been told at least.

How long are they? Any pics? Can they be hand loaded or do you have a way to load them onto a trailer?

There is a saw mill in Sanger that cuts them into boards to use for fences and what not, they will come and pick them up, I had some in Denton that they took off my hands. The mill is just west of Sanger on 455 I believe.

Now that is some good info, I have a 30ft gooseneck that needs re-decking.
