Fruit Trees

I started a small apple orchard of 10 dwarf trees, they need to be staked. I bought pressure treated 1x2's, did i make a mistake? I am beginning to wonder if the chemicals from the stakes will leach into the trees and eventually the fruit? :confused:

I planted semi dwarfs, so I didn't stake them. I did have a mouse or something girddle one of them over the winter.:mad:
I got my final delivery for our mini home orchard today...two more apple trees, two pear, two cherry, 10 blueberry and 4 cranberry.:D
I got mine from Miller Nursery (on line) and they are out of upstate NY, so they were grown in a climate similar to mine.
