Random length futures dropped $84 today, to $920. Market price on 2 x 4 is no change, around CDN$1400.

I bought some PT lumber today in northern Maine close to the Canadian border and deep into the Irving Kingdom.  ;D
It'll be delivered next week.  Hope it's nice.  The store owner said lucky me the price is down.

40 - 50% higher up here at Kent (Irving's flagship building centre). Probably cheaper in Yarmouth, NS, same store. :D

I walked across the Kent lumber yard this week but never looked to see who's lumber they had but I can tell you for certain that at one time (4 or 5 years ago) there was not one stick of Irving lumber in the yard.

I made a comment to the store assistant manager while he was pricing up my list, he said that the Irving lumber rep asked him the same thing two weeks earlier to which he replied "your prices are too high".

Wasn't red pine? That's all we see here is red pine.

A lot here in their yards comes out of Quebec.

Meanwhile I drive by Crabbe's mill and their yard is stuffed full, their yard goes up over a hill to another level, you don't see half of the lumber piled up. All out in the rain and sun to. :D

Can Red pine be pressure treated?
From what I can see it takes pressure treatment same as most other pines, so Yes. 
It gets sold in the general SPF grade.

Red pine can be mixed in the SPF(S), South, species group, it is not allowed in the general SPF species group. That's a strength issue. It does treat, but not as well as the southern yellow pines. Red pine is our only native relative of the european pine, pinus sylvestris, scots pine. I wouldn't be surprised to see SYP anywhere, it travels  :).

 I thought Red Pine was more closely related to European Black Pine? 

 Red pine is one of our major commercial species up here. Primary uses are studs, treated lumber, pallet, and utility poles.

X2. Around here red pine was planted like a row crop, the best trees are cut for utility poles. And for dimensional lumber it goes to Biewer sawmill in Prentice (WI), where they saw millions of board feet of it for the treating and construction industry. 
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

It was nice not having to sort thru the piles to find quality. ;)

Riddle me this.  Looks like it is being shipped north and then treated in N.Y. or Mass.?

Wow.  The mill is In Bristol Florida.

I've got treated red pine posts on the porches here. Floor decking is treated spruce and one deck is white cedar.

There are two groups of pines.  The white pines that have five needles to the fascicles (needles in bundles of five), also called the soft pines, and the yellow pines with either 2 needles or 3 needles to the fascicle, also called the hard pines.  

Red pine is in the yellow pine group.   There are a number of yellow pines such as red pine, Jack pine, lodge pole pine, pitch pine, pond pine, table mountain pine, sand pine, Virginia pine, and spruce pine.  Lobolloy, shortleaf, slash, and longleaf are also in the yellow pine group, but are classed separately as the four major Southern yellow pines (SYP) because of their much higher strength and density.

Also cheaper not to have all the hazardous materials and its regulations to deal with.
