What chemicals are used in this pressure treated lumber?

This question is from 4 in. x 4 in. x 12 ft. #2 Pressure-Treated Timber

November 19, 2014
I am looking at 4 IN. X 4 IN. X 12 FT. #2 PRESSURE-TREATED TIMBER to use as posts for a vegetable garden fence and gate. The fencing surrounding the garden is 8+ feet high to keep the deer out. I am worried that the chemicals might leach out into the soil and get into the vegetables and other plants in the garden. Could you tell me what chemicals are used in this particular type of pressure treated wood? Thanks.

Answer: 
Copper. Arsenic was removed from residential wood in 2004. Only copper should leach out. If you are worried about copper leaching, then use metal posts.

Answer: 
It really should not be. The specs says this is .15 below ground should be .40. I think its a mistake when the description says below ground contact.for that reason alone. Those are industry standards.

Answer: 
Yes, it can be sunk in the ground. It is recommended that your below-ground part of the post is 1/3 the height of the overall post. Sooo, if you are looking at a 12 foot post, you should sink it 4 feet in the ground if possible. I usually use a fast-set concrete that can be poured in the hole around the post and water added. Quikrete has some nice videos of projects using posts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big beefy lumber great for farm table legs High quality 4x4 post perfect for a first time furniture maker April 8, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unsatisfied with product I knew the new deck materials would run into the thousands, I checked local lumber yards and Home Depot whose pricing was nearly $1,000 less than the lumber yards. But then when all of the product was delivered I realized I made a mistake the 4x4x8 posts were so bad that it forced me into covering everyone with a PVC sleeve, the original plan was to stain the posts. Then the 2x8x12's were warped and forced more bridging than required by the town. Overall Home Depot totally let me down. It was obvious that the associate picking out my lumber showed little to no regard to quality. Doubt I'd ever do it again. After spending $5,000 I must say that I can't support the quality of Home Depots wood products. I haven't opened the Trex packaging yet, but I'm hopeful I don't have an issue there too August 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It was pressure treated wood. Straight I was pleased that they had my product ready for me to pick up in the lumber yard when I got their. April 14, 2015
