Creosote has been in use for over 150 years and has traditionally been used as a preservative for timber products as it deters wood-destroying insects and wood-rotting fungi better than any other wood preservative on the market. Creosote oil is used in fencing timbers (agricultural stakes, equestrian fencing and for use in country parks/ estates), and utility poles.
You may see creosote substitutes that are aimed at the domestic retail market in some DIY stores but they do not offer the same preservative qualities as traditional creosote. Some competitors employ black paint to “pho” finish their fence posts and rails but don’t be fooled. Creosote has a distinctive look, texture, and odor. Creosote fence timber will initially have a dark brown appearance; this will weather to a lighter brown after long term sun exposure but will not lose its effectiveness.
