There are many engineered wood floors that have a thick top layer of some very good species that you could resaw and use the top layer and still have some very good plywood left over for something else.

As Wildwood mentioned you could buy new solid wood flooring at a good price. I have installed wood floors for many years and have put a lot of cut-offs in the dumpster and also kept a lot for future use for projects. There have been many times when a solid nail down or click together wood floor had to be replaced because of water damage and is an insurance claim which required the whole floor to be removed. All of this wood goes into the trash On many occasions there may be one or two boxes left over from the job. My suggestion is to check with some of your local wood flooring companies or their installers. There may be a free dumpster full for you now. My local Habitat for Humanity store usually has some boxes for sale. Free wood may require a little more labor, but you will need to be the judge if it is worth it.
