Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job I ordered a pallet of pickets (432), and 17 of them were either cracked at the top or bottom or had "peep holes" in them. It's OK, because I knew they wouldn't all be perfect. So, I returned those for a refund without hassle. I am definitely satisfied and plan to order more to complete the other side of my backyard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for my use. I used these to build cedar birdhouses. They were awesome! I was going to use cedar lumber when I saw these they were perfect. I planed the side that would be inside smooth. I could get two houses out of each board I just made straight cuts on my miter saw and glued and nailed them together. Makes a great project to do with kids! April 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great quality for Home Depoy I bought 200 of these and only had 1 that was warped and unusable. I was very pleased. February 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for raised beds - but would not order in bulk These are just what I needed for my raised beds. It did take me some time to pick the boards I needed out at the store(many were warped, or had knot holes/splits) so I would hesitate to buy these in bulk - but I certainly will be buying more of these as I expand my gardens.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great multi use boards I bought these boards for skirting on my deck. I let them dry out for a week in my basement, great aroma for the house. Then cut them to size. Worked great! July 12, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent for the price Decent pickets - most were in decent shape, although i found a number of them that were starting to split at the top. The pickets were slightly wet when i hung them, resulting in some shrinkage that left small gaps between the pickets. If you don't want the gaps, be sure to let them dry out first. They absorbed the sealant/stain well. July 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by POOR QUALITY I needed 20 of these. I could only find 16 that weren't split. After sitting in the sun for a few hours 5 more split. May 4, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great, cheap alternative for raised bed garden As a true fencing option, I can't imagine these would be the best choice. Many of the boards are warped or damaged. However, I was looking for a cheaper option for a raised bed garden for my young kids without using treated wood. These worked perfect and, with some 2x4s supports, assembled easily into a 3 x 5 structure. I used 6 boards in all, stapled weed fabric to the bottom, and filled with 10 bags of compost and top soil. Vegetables are near ready for harvesting. May 27, 2014
