I have asked previously about using my black locust trees for poles for my pole barn. I am now thinking I shouldn't waste them on the barn since the barn will be enclosed and not out in the weather. So now my questions...(By the way, I live in West Virginia and I dont have any cedar and very little pine on my property.) What trees are best to use for pole barns? (I am coating the bottom with preservative before setting them in the cement) What wood shrinks very little when dry? Do I need to remove the bark? I figure I need 10 inch diameter, 10-12 ft poles. Any advice would be great!
