The biggest problem is arsnic leeching. Check with the certification board for treated wood that is acceptable and has no arsnic used in the treatment.
Or you could try the kind of recycled plastic artificial lumber that Organic Gardening was promoting when Mike McGrath was editor. If you hit there website you can e-mail Mike a question. Annette

My brother-in-law nearly lost his finger from a pressure treated wood splinter. I won't have the stuff on my property, and I certainly wouldn't eat anything that was grown near it. Why does your neighbor have a pile of it?
