Greetings all! My husband recently bought several pressure treated tree stakes for our avocado tree. The tree currently has a support that is tilting and needs correcting and enlarging. The tag on the new stake warns you to thoroughly wash clothes and skin after working with it & wear gloves, dust mask and goggles when working with it. Do not burn. Don't let it come into contact with drinking water, human/animal food, bedding or food storage etc. So I'm pretty sure (call me crazy) that it is not appropriate for a food baring tree. ( It has avocados on it now). Just looking for some validation. I've emailed the manufacturer but have not gotten a response after a month. Thank you.
