Pressure-Treated Southern Yellow Pine Lumber is treated for protection against termites and rot. Ideal for a variety of ground contact applications including decks, play sets, walkways and other outdoor projects where lumber is exposed to the elements. This lumber can also be painted or stained. When used properly it is both safe and environmentally friendly.Treated wood is typically still wet when it's delivered to The Home Depot or job site. As it dries, you should expect slight changes in width and length. As lumber dries, it may split, cup and warp. This is more likely to occur to occur in lower-grade boards, where knots and uneven grains are already present. Each piece of lumber is unique and carries physical characteristics that may include the following: knots, warping, shrinkage, swelling and/or splitting.

I constructed a platform at the bottom of the stairs to eliminate the tapered last step which was dangerous because there was no space, at the narrow tapered end, to step on. It caused many stumbles and a fall. Now with the platform it is safe.

Like most lumber today, the prices have gone up and the quality isn't there. The lumber also had some open knots on the edges.
