    Description

    When treated wood is used in field settings, the possibility of environmental contamination raises concerns. There is increasing pressure to be environmentally friendly and to reduce, restrict, or eliminate the use of wood preservatives because of the concern that toxic constituents may leach from the treated wood. This report will provide an overview of preservative systems, help readers understand the level of risk and status of the science involved in evaluating preservative systems, and provide some guidelines for using the products.
