The prevention of fungal or insect attack in the ®rst two states will primarily have been the responsibility of the forester or the merchant. We are concerned mainly with the possibility of attack after the timber has been installed although, of course, not every piece may have been attackfree at the time of construction.

Brush immersion vacuum/pressure treatment. Creosote, which is still the most e€ective preservative, is unlikely to have been used internally, in view of its powerful smell and tendency to bleed following pressure application. CCA generally has a slight green colour, and can be used on externally exposed timber, while OS is colourless but tends to leach out of the timber, and therefore needs, for example, a paint protection when used externally. Brush application results in negligible penetration of the timber, and immersion only marginally more so, although end grain, as one would expect, is around ten times more absorbent than side grain.
