For many years, as early as the ARRL 1957 Handbook, they have described a
mast made of two 2x4's at ground level, with a spliced 2x4 in between them,
(wide flat side to wide flat side) as the top piece.  With 20 foot timber,
you could go up 30  feet or 35.  This was also in the ARRL Antenna books of
those years.  This type of mast is also more easily implemented if you hinge
the base 2X4's to a timber in the ground.
