When wood is "treated", usually it means that a wood preservative has been applied to kill off fungi, insects etc in the wood, treated pine that one uses in garden beds etc springs to mind. However in the last few years, one of the preservatives used for treating such wood called Chromate copper arsenate has been restricted in usage in several countries due to arsenic leaching out of the wood into it's environment. Here's the wikipedia version with more details then what I've given:
