Only if Southern Pine, as Dave's site said. Any of the seven other species: http://www.anthonyforest.com/pdfs/DCA6.pdf

Most Building Departments are using this for spans, footings, ledgers, fasteners, bracing, etc., keep in mind this is minimum required code for safety, from the wood supplier.

Be safe, Gary

I should have mentioned that I probably would not span 14'
I only have 6-7' between my beams & my joists are 12" OC
Its rock solid & was not that much more $$ to build it sturdier
