Pressure-treated wood is a staple of the Canadian backyard.  But there a few need-to-knows when working with it. 

1. New pressure-treated wood is corrosive to steel.  This means special fasteners should be used- stainless steel or copper are ideal.  Galvanized steel fasteners can be used but be sure they are labelled - for use with pressure-treated wood. 

2. Before you buy, be sure the wood has the preservative treatment that matches how you'll use it.  Some pressure-treated wood is tagged for above ground use only.

3. Wear protective gear - the wood is chemically treated so slivers or sawdust can be dangerous.  

4. Never burn pressure-treated wood, it's toxic.  Dispose of it properly.  

Before you begin an outdoor project, "yes" -even a deck, check if building permits are required.
