Since heartwood—wood from the center of the tree—is denser, it accepts pressure treatment less readily than sapwood—wood cut from the outer edges. This isn't as great an issue with dimensional lumber like 2x10s and deck boards; these boards are thin enough that the preservatives are usually driven throughout.

Grade: #2 & Better, Nominal Dimensions: 5 4 in x 6 in x 14 ft. Wood Species: Pine or Spruce, Actual Thickness: 1-5 32 inch. Special Features: MCA (Micronized Copper Azole), Actual Width: 5-1 2 inch. Resistance Features: Pressure treated to prevent rot and decay when used in above ground applications, Length: 14 foot.

Calculate the coverage in square feet of each deck board by multiplying the length by the decimal portion of a foot of the width of the deck boards. For example, a 2-by-6 by 8 feet long pressure-treated deck board will cover 3.8 square feet.

Pressure Treated or CA-C Wood. Pressure treated wood is the classic low-cost deck board. PT wood in longer lengths (10' or greater) and wider widths (6' or greater) can work as an effective deck board, but with limitations. Soft woods like Douglas Fir, Hemlock, Southern Yellow Pine, and Ponderosa Pine 

Historically, the nominal dimensions were the size of the green (not dried), rough (unfinished) boards that eventually became smaller finished lumber through drying and planing (to smooth the wood). Today, the standards specify the final finished dimensions and the mill cuts the logs to whatever size it needs to achieve 

Redwood, cypress and western red cedar have excellent initial color characteristics but, like pressure-treated pine, will eventually weather to a silvery gray. Wood Dimensions. Select 5 4 wood at a minimum. This dimension is 1 to 1-1 4 inches thick. Any less thickness produces a springy, weak deck. Joist spacing also
