ttt uglies

TTT Uglies have most of the same characteristics as TTT SED Poles with one important difference - they are debarked instead of peeled. Debarking results in a stronger pole - about 6% stronger than a TTT SED Pole - due to less removal of the cambium layer. The rougher finish of TTT Uglies also make them particularly useful for foundations where skin friction is important.

However, what you gain in strength you compromise in looks. TTT Uglies have a rougher finish making them more suited for use in situations where they are unseen.

TTT Uglies are still reliably top quality, naturally tapered, Radiata Pine poles. They are also carefully graded and selected for straightness, even taper, regular sizing and consistent quality.

Every TTT Uglie is treated to H5 Hazard Class to provide protection against fungal and insect attack in an outside, in-ground, critical use situation.
