Since our establishment in 2008, Discount Cedar has sold 100,000s of cedar fence posts all over the country to thousands of customers.This is something we are extremely proud of. We have shipped full semi-truck loads of fence posts to Texas, Colorado, Kansas, South Dakota, and Louisiana. We also have supplied posts to many farm and ranch supply stores, lumber companies, and even oilfield supply companies. In May of 2013, we were recognized in the Houston Chronicle as business of the week.
We are always striving to exceed our customers' expectations by providing the best quality product that cannot be found anywhere else. We spend a lot of time vetting suppliers (loggers/sawmills) to make sure we are getting the best cedar. Our suppliers hand sort our cedar posts to insure that every post meets our requirements in regards to straightness, size, and dense heartwood. All of our cedar comes from the Ozark Mountains in Missouri.
We used to buy cedar in Texas, but found that most of the quality was poor (crooked, weak heartwood). That being said, there is really good cedar in the Kerrville area.
Our decay resistant cedar will last 20-50 years in the ground. In addition to being rot resistant, the straightness of our fence posts make them look very uniform. Our hope is that by buying our quality product, our customers will not have to replace their fence again.
Prices: Our prices are competitive with treated pine poles. Unfortunately, most of these treated fence posts will last only 3-5 years before showing signs of rot. That means people who go with treated posts will have to replace their fence at least five times before our customers need to even think about replacing theirs. Our main business focus is on semi-load 24 ton orders. Also, we have two retailers in Texas who provide our fence posts to customers who need smaller orders.
