What I am reading and hearing

In reply to pt wood by pb on February 15th, 2002 01:58 AM [Go to top of thread]

CCA or Wolmanized Pressure Treated Wood is being phased out and not replenished as stocks at retail outlets sell out, due to the Arsenic.

In my area, CCA is the only pt wood around. I spoke with the Wolman Site and they state that as soon as stocks of CCA are depleted, then another pt wood will be right in the door behind it. This is even better that CCA wood and is done the same manner but no Arsenic, but still small levels of copper. This wood has EVEN a longer guarantee period than CCA.

Could not find out if the prices, retail, will be the same or what.

Independant School Districts are tearing down play equipment with PT wood at a rate that is un believable. Its being banned from all playgrounds and sub'd with metal and plastic like you see at micky d's.
