Samples were taken from 95 poles that had been treated with PCP in oil, ammoniacal copper arsenate (ACA) or CCA and stored for up to 18 yr in New York, Oregon and Washington. The samples were taken on either side of the widest check at 4 heights up the pole. The outer preservative-treated portion of each core sample was removed and the remaining portion cultured for 30 days.
