Can roof trusses be made with treated lumber?

Yes. Using most pressure treated wood does not sacrifice truss quality or reliability in any way. And, loading conditions are not impacted, so the installation process remains unchanged. Some pressure treated wood is very corrosive to the truss plate and requires stainless steel plates. We also have to take a load reduction with some preservatives.
