Creosote

Creosote bushes thrive in this part of the Mojave Desert. I don’t know why they have this name but creosote is not something you want hanging around in your chimney flu, it’s great for starting house fires…

  1. They use the resin to treat the old wooden telephone poles. My dad was a lineman for the county so he climbed poles all day. Creosote resin has a somewhat offensive odor which does not wash off easily.

    • Wow thank you David! Seems there’s always someone who has the answer to one’s questions. I like the bushes as far as the way they look, never smelt anything from one though.
