Here’s another vote for the portable/mobile sawyer.

Most of the major portable mill manufactures have referral services. Here’s one for Wood Mizer:

I’ve never pulled the trigger, but I’ve researched a couple mobile sawyers, and the rate is around $1-2 per bf. Some charge for travel, some don’t within a specific radius. The sawyer’s tolerance for urban lumber will vary. Most have a blade replacement fee to cover their loss.

As long as you’re not in a hurry for kiln-dried S4S boards, it can be cost-effective.
