timber masts

Hi guys

Id like some info if possible on timber masts. Other than the extra maintence like regular varnishing, What are the main issues to think about?

Do they weigh more?
are they more prone to damage?
are they more difficult to attach things to?
and anything that I have probably not thought about. Thanks in advance.
