About This Product

Pressure-Treated Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This double treated Ground Contact lumber must be used for applications where treated lumber is difficult to maintain, repair or replace. Treated lumber is critical to the performance and safety of an entire system or construction such as deck joists, beams and ledger boards. An additional benefit of treated lumber is its defense against rot and insect infestation for its vast majority of applications. Southern yellow pine is responsibly manufactured, safe, and environmentally friendly when used as directed.Treated wood is typically still wet when it's delivered to The Home Depot or job site. As it dries, you should expect slight changes in width and length. As lumber dries, it may split, cup and warp. This is more likely to occur to occur in lower-grade boards, where knots and uneven grains are already present. Each piece of lumber is unique and carries physical characteristics that may include the following: knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling and/or splitting.

Q:What are the chemicals used to treat the wood? We want to use it for a raised garden bed, but I'm concerned the chemicals will get in the soil.

Answer This Question

A:  AmAS, this pressure-treated lumber utilizes MCA, or Micronized Copper Azole, as a powerful and dependable shield against rot, fungal decay, and termites in both above-ground and ground-contact settings. These treated timbers are ideal for creating raised vegetable gardens and flowerbeds. Using treated wood for items like tomato stakes, flowerbed borders, planters, walls, trellises, and compost bins offers the added benefit of long-lasting durability.

        Answer This Question

        A:  I did something similar but had a problem. They are extremely wet if your store just got a fresh shipment. Some of mine were literally slimy and slid out of my hands loading them. I installed them that wet. When they started drying, they warped.

            Good Product
            These 2x's were straight, not full of knots and very little crown. They seem a good solid product and Im confident they will do the job for many years.

            Sturdy
            Purchased because I wanted to try my hand at building a Adirondack chair. Wasn't trying to build a forever lasting or high quality chair, just wanted to give it a try. Was extremely satisfied with the outcome. This is one sturdy chair. I did protect the wood with a polyurethane stain and so far has survived all the rain and snow the mother nature had thrown at it. Again, I am not a skilled craftsman, but this wood was PERFECT for my need.

              Half of a 2x4 isn't a 2x4
              Absolutely terrible quality. 20% of the boards have half of their volume missing. 20% of the boards have splits that go over halfway thought the boards. 10% of them have knots missing from the board leaving gaping holes. If you get past the first half that are completely unfit for construction, good luck finding one that isn't warped, bucked, or twisted. This wood is so bad, I reccomend that the manufacturer be reported for false grading.
