Always custom pick this lumbar from the shelf. Some batches are worse than others. There is always plenty of junk. Look for warps and cracks.
When you get them home, store them on top of each other *with twenty + pounds of weight every five feet*. These boards can warp like a taco in the hot sun if they are not held down. I have never had a problem once I bolt them down.
I don't think I have ever seen kiln dried pressure treated, but I am not in the business. This stuff works for many years as planter boxes. but I add 9 inch Vycor where the wood is covered by soil. This extends the life even more.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Satch Absolute garbage! It was wet & warped, cuped & twisted. I went to try again & the new batch was sopping wet.
This stuff is nasty wet garbage. It was twisting, warping & cupping within 10 days. I returned it, & went to find a straight piece. The whole bundle was sopping dripping wet. No wonder it warps & twists. It is utter garbage. Even if you use it immediately, it starts cupping. I am used to kiln dried pressure treated lumber with a low moisture content. This stuff is a joke. I will treat the redwood I bought. To blazes with this rubbish. I doubt it would burn anyway. It is way too wet!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FishNFool Poor Quality, extremely wet
Bought eight of these to build to build four small raised beds. Used 3" screws to secure to a 12" section of a 4" x 4" post, positioned crown (or ring/lines) toward the inside. Each one curled and lifted off of the post with a few cracking in the process.

I ordered on line when I arrived to collect the boards it was difficult to find where they had been stored, the order was incomplete, the selected boards were poor quality (badly splintered)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by drc1 all the boards where straight and in good shape
The lumber was used as a retaining wall and was much better than I expected. It will enhance the look as well as the functionality.
