What is Preserved Lumber? – Wood Preservatives
Lumber and other wood products are an economical and renewable building resource. However, untreated lumber and other wood products are subject to attack by insects, micro-organisms, and decay fungi.
To help ensure long term structural performance, lumber and other wood products must be protected from its natural predators. Preserved wood is lumber or plywood that has been treated with wood preservatives to help protect it from termites and fungal decay. Wood preservation is the process by which lumber and other wood products are preserved.
