These are real black locust posts from a company in Spruce Pine, North Carolina who revived the style of bark shingle siding and natural accents like posts and railings. You can get more information about their products at

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"In designing a home, we feel it’s extremely important not to design and build independently from the natural surroundings, and we incorporate the area’s native materials," says Simmons. The region and the site strongly influenced the home's shape, orientation and details. The home gives a nod to local and historical architectural traditions, takes full advantage of the views and is composed of elements like the bark shingles and locust posts.
