Need to ID type of wood used on deck

I have 2 board that I need to replace on my deck. The follwing code is on the back: TP Premium KD 19 200 R.E.D 8-BRY SYP

TP Timber Products, Inc

KD 19 Kiln dried to 19%

200 R.E.D. Not sure what it means

8-BRY (Not sure what it means

SYP (Southern Yellow Pine) I think?

Any ideas?

Mike

TP = accredited inspenction agency -- in this case Timber Products Inc.

KD19 = kiln dried to 19%

2 = lumber grade -- in this case the lumber is grade no.2

00 = mill number

R.E.D = radial edge -- commonly used for decking surface

SYP = species of lumber -- in this case Southern Yellow Pine

8 = perhaps 8 ft length ( not sure )

BRY = not sure
