Wood treated with creosote is now only used for commercial applications, such as timbers for railroad ties, highway bridges and guardrail posts, and wood used in marine structures - bulkheads, docks, and seawalls.
However, treated wood should not be used where it is likely to become a component of food or mixed directly with foodstuffs.
Treated wood should not be burned in fireplaces, stoves, or other non-permitted units because toxic residue may be produced as part of the smoke or ashes.
