A whole lot of buildings put up in the 80s are rotting off 5-8 inches below the surface around here.

I think the permacolumns are a good idea.

That said, I used the standard laminated treated wood on my shed the builder offered a couple years ago. We will see if I regret that in a decade or 2.

Its a cost vs benefit deal we all have to face.

Understood, I am ,,,, uh, getting up there in years and the kids will likely end up up with it after my departure but long before the poles rot. I think that 80's treated wood was superior to that EPA approved stuff we buy today also? only similarity is they still put green dye in the tank.

Its just a different material, before 2003, it was Copper Chromated Arsenate, C.C.A. .40 or the .60 (40 year and 60 year respectively). ACQ and the other treatment, may not be ground contact, but C.C.A. is and you can order or obtain it for AG purposes. C.C.A. was in use for years and was fine til fools made picnic tables with it or used it for the kitchen counter or something, LOL. I used to handle trailer loads of it fresh from the treatment plant, lot of fresh material, crystallization, so I used gloves. Enviro whackos must have helped push C.C.A. aside with the EPA.
