    A guy was/is selling basswood poles on TB by the half-dozen, or something. Bought a ton in the past and retiring, or something.



    Selling other stuff too

    Looks like Sanford Maine.

    14' round basswood.

    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.

    Reason I ask is my work right now is about 75% clipping Browntail moth nests. They only make nests at the very tips of branches, and the closest I can climb is often 20+feet below the tops. Using 3 yellow poles is killing my shoulders and I'm looking for 18 ft of lighter poles... Open to any suggestions

    Not me Nick. (Good to see you posting a bit.)

    I do have a set of three of the lighter weight blue poles Sean. Those are good for weight but very "whippy"/bendable. And I bent one feral by having that heavy duty 1 1/2" pruner head up there and bringing the whip to a stop too fast.

    I would think the CF might be worth a try. (With the lighter 1 1/4" pruner head.)
