10 junkpoles. The yellow measuring tape indicates 8ft.

edited to update the photos. I initially left the tops on because I wanted to build the panels with the tops and then shape the top border or leave them on depending on how it looked -- based on the shaping technique that Grey told me about. I also knew that there was another submission where the tops were included without an issue: permies.com/p/1395672. I now understand that it's not acceptable for the BB but perhaps this should be clarified in the instructions?  =/

We are going to fence in one of our gardens and want to try junkpoles. We have never done it before, so we will see how it goes.

It took a little while, but now we have less small trees and more junk poles! they should serve their purpose well.

So Brian, Kristy, and I were all logging during the spring BB 20 event and after assembling our collections of 10 poles they were all piled on the truck and taken somewhere else on the lab to be materials for future junkplole fence. So my "off the ground picture" is all of them together is that a problem?
