Copper chromium arsenate treated timber leaches toxic resudue into the surrounding soil and creates high levels of arsenic and chrome.

includes 4 samples

We come, discuss your situation with you and take the relavant samples.  A fully reigistered and qualified laboratory will analyse them within a fortnight. 

You will then be able to see, if you can grow vegetables or fruit safely, or have chickens in that area.

CCA is highly toxic and leaches out for a long time.  Arsenic accumulates in our bodies, so even small amounts ... all add up.
