The Wood Preservation Industry

Europe’s wood preserving industry supplies around 6.5 million m3 of pressure treated wood per year for woodworking, construction, landscaping, leisure wood, agriculture, marine, railway, telecommunication, electricity generation and distribution applications. This wood is treated with either waterborne products, solvent based products or creosote. The pressure treated timber will enjoy a service life much greater than that of untreated timber, thus preserving millions of trees for future generations.
