In my understanding, it stands for "Heat Treated" a form of Kiln Drying that is supposed to destroy pests, their eggs and larvae...could be wrong though, It's happened once or twice.

Mickey's correct it's heat treated.

Heat treated lumber may be marked as KD-HT or HT. If marked KD-HT, the lumber is being guaranteed as 19% or less moisture content and that it has been heat treated to at least 56 degrees C (minimum of 133 degrees F) for at least 30 minutes at the lumber core. A mark of HT signifies that the lumber has been heat treated to at least 56 degrees C for at least 30 minutes at the lumber core, without moisture content designation.
