Substitute for treated pine posts?

Post by Lauren » Mon Nov 09, 2009 9:32 pm

Well, our new house is almost completed sooner than we thought, had a look today and the carpet is going in tomorrow.. dads planning on staying to do the garden (hes into landscaping etc) and set up the aviary for Jibby and Lola. But he mentioned today that he was planning on extending the aviary with some treated pine posts. Now I know this is not a good idea. I will have to try and convince dad that treated pine is a no no. But is there any other wood posting he could use instead? I know dad and know what hes thinking of doing. The posts are quite thick, like the wood ones you see in childrens playgrounds or what the swings are bolted to. Help much appreciated. :)

Cedar and Redwood are the first that come to mind. They're fairly weather and bug resistant.
I've been called 'birdbrained' before, but somehow I don't think this is what they meant. say:hah-nay
