Wood Treating

Wood treating chemicals significantly extend the lives of wood products used in railroad ties and utility poles, increasing their lifespan by multiple decades. The longevity of treated wood is a tremendous asset and benefit to our forests, as far fewer trees must be harvested, processed, and transported to meet the market’s steady demand for utility poles and railroad ties.

Environmental regulatory agencies have identified risks of concern associated with occupational and ecological exposure to the chemicals used to treat these wood products. Maintaining compliance with established regulations is key to being a successful player in this industry.

Understanding the regulations surrounding these risks requires a team of scientists with the experience and knowledge necessary to protect your staff and your investment. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with our people and our services.
