    Don't know if it helps but I priced some for trailer decking recently.

    $33 per 2"x8"x16' board.

    Thanks guys. I have several big red oak that are getting some dead branches at the top and was thinking of taking them down. The trunks look good and was thinking about having some boards cut. My wifes uncle has a Wood Mizer and does a good job sawing. I also have some big redpine I need sawed up before the beetles get into it.

    I thought it was pretty reasonable for true 2" x 8" 's cut from red oak.

    I was only ordering 9 boards so that may be part of it.
    Was tough just to get quotes. Most didn't understand why I didn't want standard dimensional PT Pine. :confused:
