karamazov- paper is renewable. chemical treated wood. although wood is renewable it also depends on the type of wood but also chemically treated woods are not very good to recycle anyways. good alternative would be pressure treated wood and i think they have heat treated woods as well. another product would be styrofoam. i know they use big blocks of styrofoam as fillers in concrete projects because it's cheap and it doesn't break down. not sure what a good alternative in this situation would be. more concrete would just be more costly
