After the “Whitewood” is sorted, it is sent to the dry-kilns for “Conditioning.” “Conditioning” is the process by which the Whitewood is heated in order to lower the wood's natural moisture content and make room for the preservative. “Conditioning” also sterilizes the Whitewood.

Peeling the Whitewood
NationWide’s poles are conditioned in kilns that are computer controlled to ensure that the Whitewood is consistently conditioned to the appropriate moisture content.

The Whitewood is stacked on railcars and pushed into dry-kilns. Depending on the class, length, and time of year, Whitewood is conditioned in the dry-kilns for 3 to 4 days.
