I had a customer call today looking for 70- 3" x 12"  x 8' pressure treated SYP timbers. Can someone help me find these, he said he about a month.

I bet that will have to be a custom job at one of the pressure treatment plants since those are not stock size timbers.  You will probably have to contact one of the treatment plants to discuss options.

Where are you located?

Sounds like less than stellar planning on someone's part.  I don't know of any sawmills cutting 3x12s as a stock item.  They would need a kiln to get them dry enough to treat in that time frame, too.  On the upside, it wouldn't be much of a challenge to get them treated if you have a good pressure treat facility that does custom work.  Our's is just a 3-day turnaround and they'll do any size or quantity.

"Where are you located?" is a real important question here. ;)
