A proposed accelerated field stake test for rapid assessment of wood preservative systems

Published Online: 2010-07-13 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/hf.2010.071


A ground-contact field test which would yield faster deterioration data when testing new wood preservative systems would be useful. This paper reports on an accelerated field test concept where wood samples are treated with a proposed preservative and a reference system with known efficacy, with the treated samples installed next to ground-contact wood feeder stakes that are already infected with wood decay fungi. This method was employed to compare decay efficacies of wood treated with four copper systems commonly available in the US. Two preliminary short-term studies show that this test method can provide differentiation between preservatives systems after only a short exposure period.

Keywords: accelerated; copper; decay; field test; wood preservatives
