MicroPro AC2 Pine for Deck

What can you guys tell me about MicroPro AC2 Pine from Menards? It is a pressure treated wood. I am looking at building a deck with? How does it compare to Red Cedar?

MicroPro AC2 Pine for Deck

The pressure treated wood products sold at Menards are typically either Southern Yellow Pine or Red Pine species.* These species of trees are generally produced from well managed forest programs and plantations.* The wood is pressure treated with the Osmose MicroPro wood treatment system.* Information on the MicroPro process can be found at www.osmosewood.com.* Menards sells two lines of AC2 MicroPro treated products.* One is in a light natural green color and the second is a cedar tone color.* For information on these products, visit a Menards store or their website.

MicroPro AC2 Pine for Deck

Thanks for the information...however, whether it is Southern Pine or Red Pine makes a big difference on the Beam Span per this guide (http://www.awc.org/Publications/DCA/DCA6/DCA6-09.pdf) to which my local Building Permits website directed me. I'll call or go in to Menards, before I submit my plans, since their website is just a (stripped) version of their print ad.
