Preservative treatment of willow wood (Salix alba): Product retention and spatial distribution

abstract
The aim of this research was to evaluate the preservative treatment of willow wood in order to increase its service life in outdoor commodities (use class 3 by EN 335-1). Treated willow could by used as garden wood (furniture, fencing,...) or as more technical building products such as cladding. An evaluation of the product retention was performed as well as of the penetration profile of the preservatives. For this Study eight trees of white willow (Salix alba), age 27, were selected in a homogeneous stand in Bree, Belgium. The sampling contained stem pieces taken at four different height levels. Based on the treatment data, it can be concluded that treatability of willow wood with a CCA preservative following a Lowry process is not just based on one single parameter. Significant intraclonal differences are noticed. Product retention and penetration levels are found to be much lower for heartwood and transition wood in comparison with sapwood. The penetration in radial direction develops homogenously whereas the penetration in tangential direction is highly variable. Although a significant correlation was found between wood density and product retention, density remains a weak parameter in predicting preservative treatability.
