Can I use regular pine lumber as a stair tread cover?

I'd like to use knotty pine boards as stair tread covers instead of actual tread covers. The tread covers I've seen are 1" or 2" wide pieces fit together to make a board, I'm guessing this is done to reduce warping? If I use standard pine boards, will I run into a warping problem?
