Pressure treated wood is wood that has undergone a process to make it more durable so that it is not susceptible to water, rot, termites, or fungus.

If you are looking to build something that will last, consider the advantages of using pressure treated wood. This wood is available at most lumberyards and home improvement centers. Just look for a stamp or tag of approval by the American Wood-Preservers Association</a></b> (AWPA) or the www.alsc.org,  American Lumber Standards Committee (ALSC).

Are treated timbers dangerous around children?

Generally treated timbers are not dangerous around children. Treated timbers are primarily used for decks, pergolas, fences and gates, power poles and many other outdoor structures.

Treated timbers are not dangerous to children if used in these appplications. However treated timbers should not be used for things like chopping boards where the chemical can contaminate the food. For this reason I would not use treated timbers for childrens play sheds or furnature.
