All timber utility poles, need to be treated using a creosote or CCA process in order for them to be protected from pest, insects and fungi infestations. Timber that is in contact with the ground such as the utility pole itself, will need to be H4 treated, while the cross arms will require a H3 treatment. The lesser treatment is due to there being no ground contact.
