Good price for Honey Locust

I've found a guy selling Honey Locust for $2.00 pbf and Red Elm for $1.50 pbf. I've peeked online but and it seems like a good price just want some feedback if this is really good or just average. I'd have to drive about 2 hrs to find this guy but in Indiana folks drive 2 -3 hrs to go to Frank Miller lumber for good cherry.

If they are nice boards I would say that is a very good price...cheaper than you could buy it at my mill

I'd have to drive up and see them so I'm not sure. He has an ad on Craigslist that says they are kiln dried.

I paid $1.95 for honey locust seven years ago and that was a decent price then. If I could get some around here for $2.00 I'd snatch it up!

Got it!

Okay I just bought about 275 bf of the stuff or one tree. He had 10 ft boards about 13" - 14" wide and bunch of 12' around 10" wide and various sizes after that but it's all one tree. Lots of boards to book match and crotch sections that are beautiful. Since he runs a Woodmizer mill operation all the boards are rough sawn. I have two buddies near the house that might buy some of it so I'm not worried about being stuick with too much. It's really beautiful looking wood. Working qualities are about like red oak.
