What Wood Is Best to Build Horse Fencing?

Save

Types of wood

  • Wooden horse fencing can be made from a wide variety of types of wood. Some woods are more readily available in different parts of the country, but common choices include pine, cedar and redwood.

Pressure-treated wood

  • Wooden horse fencing needs to be strong and weather resistant. The type of actual wood used is less important than making sure it was properly pressure-treated to withstand the elements. A high-quality wood will deteriorate in the same way a poor quality wood will if it's not pressure-treated.

Bottom Line

  • The type of wood used to build a fence is not as important as making sure the wood has been properly treated to withstand the elements. According to agricultural research by Pennsylvania State University, pressure-treated wood fencing can last up to 25 years if properly maintained.
