What is your project?

Wish I could help you on where to find it in the USA. However, I do know it is NOT recommended for decking. Thermo Treated wood loses a lot of it’s strength and does not do well when dirt AND water are present. The applications I have seen it used were primarily for its geometrical stability.
Sorry I can’t help more.
