About This Product

Pressure-Treated Pine meets the highest grading standards for strength and appearance. This 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.

      Q:I'm planning to use these as edgers around trees in my yard. This means I'll have to cut it at roughly 30degree angles to make it around. will this void the ground contact effectiveness???

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  RayC, when pressure-treated products are machined (crosscut, ripped or machined), unprotected or weakly protected areas can be exposed, lessening the wood’s ability to resist attack from decay fungi or termites. Applying a good quality brush-on or spray-on product is never a bad idea. These products are readily available. Look for penetrating products that boast water repellency, UV protection, and if desirable, color. Generally, we would not recommend film-forming products like paints or other “long term products.” When you believe the wood is dry enough, apply a small amount and test for ready absorption into the wood. Generally, these products will also have directions for confirming the wood is ready for the application of the product. For best results, the first application should be within 90 days of completing your project.

        A couple of days after using this product, in a construction project, many of the Beams had to be replaced due to warping. Bending measured up to 2 inches of distortion from original straight orientation. I am extremely dissatisfied with this product.
