from the small sawmill point of view, lots of it goes out at .60-.80/bdft or less
frequently pays better to keep it in a railroad tie, than cut into boards and a pallet stock 6 x6 or 4 x 6.
hopefully within the next year , i will be kiln drying vs air drying. then i might get $1-$1.50/bdft.

ahh well, i'm in west tn by the tn river, but i'm sure there is a small mill somewheres around you, with some air dried wood in a shed out back
