treated pine : LUSENET : David's Organic Forum : One Thread

We use treated pine logs around our organic vegetable garden. We assume the chemicals used in treated pine gradually leach into the soil. Are the chemicals taken up by vegetables and hence could pose a health risk to humans. Regards, John Allenspach

Be very careful as plants do tend to uptake chemicals from the soil and surrounding environment. Regards John Breeze
