I agree with your comment, it's not fun for me to pay $800 for 60 bf of beech from horizon, but coming up with stock that they have as it's delivered to me (dry and ready to use) isn't quite so trivial if you've got no way to haul logs, no beech trees to cut and nowhere to dry them (that's not entirely true, I could dry them).
