Summary

Boomstick shortage is an issue due to marine borers infestation, normal wear and tear, and market conditions. Therefore, finding a solution for upcoming boomstick shortage and reducing current cost is a high priority for the coastal logging industry. While considering many alternative products, CCA treated boomsticks emerged as a prime option due to the infrastructure already in place to manufacture them. FPInnovations facilitated a field study and trial production of CCA treated boomsticks with value-added solutions. This report will outline the setup and preliminary results of the field study and full scale treatment trial.
