Abstract
  • The heartwood of mesquite (Prosopis juliflora var. velutina) and of Utah juniper (Juniperus utahensis) is generally considered to have outstanding decay resistance. Quantitative evidence of the juniper superiority appears in a study of old fence lines by Meagher. Nearly three fourths of the juniper posts averaging 3.6 inches in diameter were still serviceable after 50 years on woodland zones presenting moderate decay hazard. By way of comparison, less than half of the cypress posts of comparable size remained serviceable.
