I want to build a grape arbor but don't know what type of wood to use. Would pressure treated lumber give off
arsnic to the grapes? I would like to build something that will last and not have to be painted.

If you are concerend about the use of pressure treated wood, you might instead try sturdy metal pipes or cedar posts which are naturally decay resistant -- both traditionally used for arbors befoe the advent of the treated wood.
