Go To McFarland Cascasde website.  They have an on line quoting engine for 
any kind of pole you specify.  Fill that out and they will contact you by 
return email...

3 years ago, a 120' class 1, treated Douglas Fir Pole, was quoted to me at 
about $3500.  Plus Shipping, in my case to Central Coast of California, and 
that was about $4000.   Not bad though for a bullet/wind proof, no guys 
required, support of that height, which would support anything and 
everything you would want to put on it.   If your soil tests out 
structurally sound, then according to the local Line crew foreman here, the 
typical bury depth, is:  10% of the height, plus 1 foot.....but...umm... 
there is a lot more to it than that...Engineer time.....

Go To:
