    I saw some guard rail posts for sale on craigslist. Does anyone know what kind of wood they use for these?
    Probably treated but I thought I'd ask.

    Wood ones are treated or they'll rot. Sometimes it's coal creosote, other times its pressure treated. Notice the greenish hue- it's a dead giveaway.

    If they were locust w/o treatment it would have been a find at $75 for 24 of them.
