Is rough sawn timber treated?

The timber has been cut to size with a circular saw and received no further treatment. This will leave the sides and edges of the timber with a rough, unfinished surface where the saw cut through the wood. Due to the simplicity of preparation, rough sawn timber is always cheaper than planed.
