Re: Reusing 2x6's and 2x4's????
That doesn't mean anything other than a high moisture content. It does not affect the strength or structural integrity of the material. You'll also find that a fresh/moist board is easier to cut and nail than reclaimed material that is dry and extremely hard, which makes it more susceptible to cracking when trying to drive new fasteners through it.

And if you want to insure you're getting good quality lumber, buy from a lumberyard, not a big box.
