Telephone pole for sale – new & used poles

Telephone poles for sale? Someone emailed today to ask where they could buy a used telephone pole. I’m not sure what would make them think this site has a phone pole on sale. However, I thought the idea was curious enough that I actually looked around and discovered that a telephone pole can be yours for the low, low price of $291. It may even be new — I didn’t ask.

Now, I’m not sure what you could do with a used telephone pole. Maybe the wood is worth more than the pole, so it’s something you can salvage and process. I imagine you could start a little business reclaiming, repurposing and reselling utility poles and other salvage that are worth more when processed than when in original form. Anyone else got an idea? I’m used to seeing "work from home scam" ads on telephone poles, but perhaps you could turn a telephone pole into work from home!

Update (2012):

Telephone poles can be used for a variety of purposes. Some of these include using recycled utility poles for:

  • construction of garages, workshops and homes
  • fences
  • mulch
  • landscaping material
  • bridge tresses
  • fuel
  • decking
  • composite materials
