Lomcdaniel, Fuquay-Varina NC...using treated lumber to grow vegetables in a raised garden may introduce toxic chemicals to your vegetables and soil. Some of the chemicals found int treated lumber are; CCA or Chromate Copper Arsenate, which has been reduced and limited to industrial use but may still be available in residential lumber as old lumber pieces; Arsenic, which is also reduce and limited to industrial use but may still be found in residential lumber stored as old lumber pieces; Copper Naphthenate; Alkaline Copper Quaternary; Copper Azole; Propiconazole-Tebuconazole-Imidicloprid.
