It takes 2.5 times longer to dry a 2” board versus a 1” board. Also, more potential drying defects in thicker lumber as thicker lumber is more persnickety to right. As has been pointed out, thicker boards require larger logs. Larger logs require bigger backs or bigger machines. Thicker lumber is heavier and harder to handle.
