Pressure treated wood color


Just finished putting up a fence built entirely with pressure treated wood. Even though all of the lumber came from the same supplier tied to the same bundles, the color variation is insane! Some is dark green like usual however almost all of the 1x6 fence boards are completely yellow! We thought they screwed up and sent us spruce but they are all individually marked stating they are pressure treated, are wet to the touch and juice when screwed into them. I've just never seen what I would call "clear" pressure treated boards before?

Unfortunately the colour can be all over.
Never seen it clear, usually really light green to dark green.

All depends on how it was stored. Outside the bundles will be dryer then the inside.
After a few years it will all even out.

The green ones I believe are coated with amine copper quat (ACQ) and the yellow looking ones say copper azole (CA).
