On April 23, 2019, wood treated with creosote, a carcinogenic substance, was banned from sale on the French market. Creosote is a mixture of oils extracted from charcoal or wood tar and is a product used for the treatment of wood and has been listed as a carcinogen by IARC (International Agency for Research Against Cancer). also known as pollutant and is therefore not important to avoid as a matter of urgency.
The "black locust" is a hardwood and naturally resistant and does not require creosote or a lot of maintenance. The acacia resists to all attacks that are likely to damage it: insects, parasites, etc.
Our products Acacia Wood come from forests in Romania, which grow in dense stands and are therefore all the more resistant.
