Here then, are two highlights to whet your appetite and reinvigorate your interest in utilizing wood as far as possible in home and business.
Why not? Why not continue with an age old tradition that is indeed an integral part of your national heritage. Because come what may, pestilences and extremities can be overcome. And here is how. Using the production of treated wood poles as a fine example, the two highlights being mentioned here are the benefits of using such wood poles and the legend of the Southern Yellow pine.
Wood is regarded as being ideal as a utility material. Today, it has become a renewable resource. Added to that, it is now resilient and extremely resistant to oxidation, corrosion, crumbling and spalling. This has been made possible through the treatment applications being made. Also, the treated wood now has low electrical conductivity. But from a commercial viewpoint this wood does have one shortcoming in that it is biodegradable.
But using preservative treatments, the wood can be protected economically against all known biological enemies, from the extremities of today’s weather patterns to the ever present pestilence of termites. And wood will no longer be allowed to weaken and collapse against all other insects and fungi known to infiltrate unprotected wood.
Most treated wood poles being harvested on the North American continent come from the southern yellow pine. This tree is a fast growing indigenous plant. Growing at a high length, it is considered to be the strongest among softwood species. It is also quite easy to treat the southern yellow pine species. Wood preservative treatments that are being used carry trademarks such as PENTA, CCA and CCA-ET.
Let’s just say that it is safe to rely on nature once more.
