    A:  Generally these are bought as 2&btr but some mills use other proprietary grades. We re-sort all of our lumber prior to treating as well and remove pieces that don't conform to our internal specifications.

      Q:I want to use these as buried posts. I understand they are rated for ground contact, but what if the buried end has been cut? Is this okay without additional treatment, or should I plan to only bury un-cut ends?
