    The answer to treated wood is no *by asking the questions sounds like you know this*

    I think it looks weathered not treated. Could you ask your buddy?

    If it was something used as a temporary suppost during shipment, doubt they would go to the extra expense of using treated but it would be nice to know for sure.

    Doubt it's PT but who knows? Probably just preservative oil from the "pickeling" new steel sometimes gets, depending on type of steel. I'll see pickeling on smaller pipe, not so much on larger diam. stuff.

    Cribbing isn't normally pressure treated, looks like some great pieces.
