Do plants take up CCA?

Hi, I need to know if plants take up CCA (copper chromium arsenate)
that is used to treat lumber. I want to make a terraced garden
using some of this wood, and would grow veggies and flowers.

Any info or pointers appreciated. Please reply by mail directly,
since I am not a biologist and don't usually inhabit this group.

Thanks very much,

Roger Ison
