The prices you are quoting for hard maple only make sense if you are buying on a remote desert island. Tony_S might be right, it’s possible that your dealer is screwing you. But unless you were blowing your nose with $100 bills while you were talking to him, I doubt someone would try to gouge you that hard. I bet it’s a miscommunication, like asking about 4/4 and them giving you the prices of 16/4.

Just like anything else in the free market, hardwood prices follow supply and demand. Big Pharma controls the price of drugs and can set prices artificially high through the use of patents and limited competition. There is no such thing as ‘Big Hardwood’ or ‘Big Sawyer.’
