Hello, anybody have any good ideas for a good timber preservative that's minimally polluting?
It's an existing wooden bridge over a stream in a damp welsh valley.
Whatever goes on the bridge will also splash/drip in the stream. It's a nature reserve, so collateral damage is not acceptable.
the EA's website is not entirely helpful, and skimming the pfaf database seems to be hinting to use Garlic Oil as a fungicide.
I think we can see the problem there.
any other ideas?
