We have family in Arkansas and friends in Missouri who both have harvested lumber off their land. Like everything else, the money is in the processing and distribution and the price paid to harvest obscenely low. Our Missouri friend bought his own milling equipment (antique but works fine for his volume) and makes a handsome side income off his own trees. The Arkansas family grumbles and takes it.

Sometimes if you contact furniture/cabinet manufacturers directly -- especially smaller family-owned ones -- you'll get a much better deal than just a lumber wholesaler.

Good luck.
