Very Useful App

This was a great tool for quickly accessing information on use of preserved wood in and over water as well as links to tools for evaluating the environmental risks. I did't realize there was so much information available.

Informative app for treated wood

This is the only app I found that had information on all treated wood products. Hard to believe some reviews when they can't even spell correctly!
