    Default Price of Lumber

    Does anybody have any idea what hardware stores purchase construction lumber for, say for example wholesale 2x4x10's

    Or, to rephrase the question, does anybody know what the mark-up is for lumber, in hardware stores. Since the selling price is easy figure out, a percentage mark-up would lead me to their purchase price.

    Does anybody know anything about Acacia Mangium trees, whether they are sold in the DR lumber market? And wholesale/retail prices?

    Talk to Ochoa. They are one of the largest wood importers in the country. I am sure that they would tell you whether Acacia mag. is here or not.

    Not sure what they purchase them for but selling costs are about $450RD for 2x4x16 imported and $320RD for 2x4x14 'local' wood
