The boards I'm measuring have been pressure treated (i.e. ACQ). What meter setting do I use?

Typically the meter readings will read around 3% to 8% higher than the true moisture content. There is no easy way to create an accurate correction factor or correlation since it is possible that each individual piece of lumber could have a different amount of treatment.
