Creosote & CCA Wood Fences: Are these products safe and legal?
Williams, General Timber Inc. Sanford, NC
How many times have you heard “You
can’t buy creosote any more?” If you’ve been to horse shows and farms around the
state and work for General Timber, Inc. you hear it quite a bit. Heard about the
dangers of arsenic found in your decks and treated lumber? Worried about your
family? Then this article is for you.
To answer the most popular questions
first: creosote is indeed a legal chemical and is readily available for treating
popular wood products like horse fencing and barn poles. Creosote has found a
home on the horse farm, with year after year of fighting wood eating insects,
fungi, ground rot and also deterring problematic horses from nibbling your
boards. It is not unusual at all for a creosote pressure treated fence to last
well past 30 years with little maintenance. If your grandfather made you help
him mend his creosote fence line, you probably dislike this very misunderstood
chemical, but you will notice that his fence has held up well over the years.
Creosote has a nasty smell and a mean bite if you don’t wear the proper
clothing, but does the job. With a little planning and information you can
safely use this product.
If you are still uncertain of the safety and
validity of creosote as a choice on your farm, check out
www.epa.gov/safewater/mcl.html - you won’t find creosote listed. When handling,
one must wear protective gloves, goggles and long sleeve shirts to keep the
product away from the skin. Creosote is photo toxic, meaning the sun will
activate it once it has made contact with the skin. If exposed, serious burns
and lots of discomfort could result if not treated immediately. Your best
defense is common sense; if you get creosote on you, quickly wash it away with
soapy water, rinse with cool water and stay out of the sun. Refer to your MSDS
(material safety data sheet) to learn more about the safe handling and use of
creosote. Using experienced fence contractors can completely protect you from
any bad experiences.
