Wood Preservative treatment for 10 foot pine fence posts

Looking for information on wood preservative treatment for pine fence posts. I understand that bluestone is commonly used. Would appreciate if anyone can give me tips/information on recipe, i.e., how much I need to treat 100 posts, length of soaking time for dry posts, etc.?

Thanks!

the info you are looking for maybe in this article ATTRA - alternatives to treated lumber. there also maybe good info in this BCMAFF handbook on wood preservation on the farm

bluestone works better on aspen/poplar posts but may be passible on green pine. cut now when sap is going up the tree. mix 1 gallon bluestone in 20 gallons water and stand posts in big end down old 45 gallon drum with top out works fine, one day is enough time add more solution as needed. if you need more info let me know
