Can I use untreated, painted pine for vege trellis?

11 years ago

I have read I shouldn't use treated lumber for trellising veges because of the chemicals, but it seems that painting over cheap untreated pine wouldn't be a problem. Am I right? Redwood and cedar cypress are too expensive for what I want to do. I don't mind if it doesn't last me but three years. Thinking of growing peas and beans on them up against the south facing house. Any thoughts?
