redbrown???????? you mean redwood which is a species of wood that is naturally rot resistant and isnt treated. or cedar

pressure treated is simply that regions standard framing lumber that is chemically injected to become rot resistant

Maybe the red-brown goes better with the decor for aesthetic purposes (LOL).

Ask the place where you bought what is the treatment method and what the properties are.

Treated lumber on the West Coast is brown in color. I suppose you could call it a brownish red. It’s usually CA (Copper Azole) treated.

I’ve never seen the yellow-green treated pine crap until I moved to the Mid-West.
