Treated Cedar...a Contradiction of Terms

Front Range Lumber sells cedar.We often asked for “treated cedar,” which is a contradiction of terms. Cedar already has the natural chemicals in the wood to resist rot/decay and insect damage. To then apply additional chemicals into the wood is an unnecessary step. 
Cedar is the natural choice for many exterior applications like fencing, trim, pergolas raised garden beds and decks.

On a related note, the chemicals now used to treat lumber are much “better” in every way – safety, health/environment and longevity; however they are still chemicals. Treated lumber should not be used in contact with drinking water or food, including vegetable garden beds.

USE 4” PICKETS instead of 6”; while the narrower size adds to some more installation effort, they are usually far less expensive on a per foot of fence basis.
