That should have been pressure treated for that price.  I recommend going to a lumber yard rather than one of the big box stores for lumber.  I heard today that the futures prices for lumber is up over 300 per cent.  There is going to be a lot of loud squealing when the prices fall.

The price jump for Doug Fir framing lumber has created a very difficult situation for builders. At four times the cost it’s going to be difficult to build a house and make a profit. Who could imagine that framing lumber would exceed the cost of some hardwoods like soft maple and alder. Strange times.
