cresoted ties affect on fruit trees and several bee hives #206813

Asked August 15, 2014, 10:07 AM EDT

I am concerned that the railroad ties around my  brick patio  might be affecting flower bed and fruit trees in my back yard.  my neighbor has several bee hives and hope I'm not killing them  since he's asked that I not use any pesticides on my trees or yard . Many of my railroad ties are really rotten and I'm thinking of replacing them with "new" ones due to their odd size  so I don't have to redo the brick . Can I cut up the old ties and bring them to the county dump

Fairfax County Virginia

Expert Response

Yes, you are welcome to take them to the County dump and check the schedule online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov .  search hours at county disposal station.    I think the hours are typically Thurs thru Sun.,

thanks for thinking of the bees, pollinators are very important,
