Can you stain pressure treated wood?

the wood has a yellowish tint to it, can I stain it and spray polyurethane on it.

Yes, you can stain it OK. You might have to take a little more time for the stain to soak in good, but there should be no problem. I've done it and the put a clearcoat on it with no problem.

As a professional painter, I always tell my clients that its advisable to let the wood weather for a year before painting/staining it. In this way the treatment wears away and the paint/stain has a better chance to adhere properly to the wood.
