The specs that I have always used for pressure treatment of wood are the American Wood-Preservers' Association Standards. They contain more than you want to know about the subject. I have the 1993 standards with a phone number of (410) 465-3169 in Maryland. As you have noted, the stamps and designations that appear on wood that you casually walk by in a lumber yard are contained in these standards. Other references: the APA number is (253) 565-6600. J.H. Baxter is a large pressure-treater in California that I have found helpful in the past.

I see tags on landscaping timbers like 6x6x8 that say "Ground Contact", "0.40 PCF", and "CCA-C". I assume this means the wood contains chromated copper arsenate at the rate of .4 lbs of cca per cubic foot of wood. Are there applications that require would a higher rate of cca ? Thanks.
