Well Southern Yellow pine is certainly strong, but something happens to it during the pressure treatment process. Sometimes the pilings I dealt with would snap.

I can get oak from a local sawmill, and I like the way it bends without breaking (The f(psi) figure I have for white oak is 15,200 for a clear specimen.)
