Most of my turning wood is local trees that I harvest. Typically after a storm, but from time to time just someone wanting a tree removed. Most always Mesquite, Ash or Mulberry around here. I would never pay for it. If I am going to pay for wood, it will be someone else doing all the labor to cut it down for sure. For the right tree, or reason. I would make the drive. Most of the time its a craigslist find for someone who cannot afford a pro.
Last big Ash tree came down in a storm. Owner was an elder lady on a fixed income. No way she could afford a pro for that big tree. Got a bunch of turning friends together and made short work of it. Helped her out, plus scored a big ash tree.
As far as it being to far gone. You are in New Zealand? Is it dead or winter dormant? If its a standing dead tree, its kind of a crap shoot as to what you get. No way to tell from a photo. If I really wanted it, I may go just to get out of town for a few hours. If its down for the winter, go get it.
