Wood is treated to prevent its destruction by wood-decaying organisms. Treating wood with the appropriate preservative increases its service life, and also helps to conserve our nation’s timber resources. Although treated wood has long been used for products such as crossties and pilings, many new applications have been developed. Preservative treated timbers are becoming increasingly popular for use in landscape construction. Their ready adaptability, ease of machining, and aesthetic qualities make them highly suited for use in landscape structures such as decks, fences, steps, and retaining walls. These structures blend naturally with the landscape and help to increase property values.
