Q:Is it safe to use these to line the outside of a chicken coop run to keep predators out and hold dirt/sand in? I also have dogs that would be exposed to them. Lastly, how long before the creosote smell dissipates?

Answer This Question

A:  I wouldn't. The EPA has restricted the use of creosote treated wood since 2005 to only commercial applications where there is no risk of contact with food, feed, or groundwater contamination.

      Best used rail road ties out there! great way to hold in gravel
      Bring gloves and inspect each one. For the most part great though. Do not let this touch your skin.

        The ties worked very well for my needs. They were mostly straight and had at least one good side.

        Glad to hear it, RP. Used Railroad Ties are rugged, heavy and so show signs of wear and tear from serving hard duty supporting trains for many years, but have lots of strength and life left in them to serve for decades longer in landscape projects. Thank you for your business.

        Just what I was looking for.
        I went to Home Depot and hand picked my beams. There are definitely some that are less desirable. If you can pick through them you will be happy.

        Good Tip, DP. For greatest satisfaction with Used Railroad Ties - or any lumber product, it's always best to pick out your own pieces in person at the store.

          Thanks for your review, Cook74. Used ties are indeed a bit rough and rugged, both due to their brute size, strength and heft (weighing in at about 200 pounds apiece), and to their long service in rock railway beds under the weight of 200-ton locomotives and their freight cars. We are glad you liked our ties and are confident they serve well in your garden for decades to come.
