I do not have a wood saw that would work well. I need to buy about 30 6 foot pieces and would like to purchase 15 of these and have them cut length wise.

Answer: 
Yes they can, at my local home depot its first two cuts free then 50 cents each cut after. Please do know , No precision cuts. And I couldn't emphasis the other answer more, Don't expect them to plan or do you're whole project for you. They aren't licensed contractors.

Answer: 
Yes just ask. I'm not sure sure of the official policy, but think the "first cut is free", but loosely enforced. In other words, don't expect them to build your project. However, I get things cut all the time at no charge.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good long lasting Straight and true through and through. Helps with the building process April 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Several knots but not bad all straight looks goods Good product good service love the on line order makes it easy March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to Work with! Great Product I use this wood to build my pressure treated picnic tables with and overall, it dries nice hardly ever warps and after a thirty day drying, it stains nice too.. I will always use it December 25, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Get what you pay for Nothing bad about Home Depot's 2x pressure treated products - like everything, you get what you pay for. I did some research. For 2x6 - 12' , the local lumber yard wants about $3 more per board. For 16' lengths, about $4 more (over 30% more). HOWEVER, Home Depot sells Grade #2, and is not rated for ground contact. The lumber yard is Grade #1 and rated for ground contact. My point is this : if you are building a play gym, flower boxes or something that needs only last a few years, Home Depot offers great prices. If you want something to last 20+ years, invest the extra money in a quality exterior lumber. July 7, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Warped when stained with Behr and rotted after 6 yrs! Built a 20'x40' two store deck so can't say every piece had issues. Replaced several 4"x4" posts after the first year because they split and twisted so badly. To my surprise after 5 or 6 years the 2"x6" boards laid horizontally across the tops of the 4x4's dry rotted I guess. They've been painted with Behr since installed and expected them to last decades not years. My parents had a pressure treated deck that wasn't stained or sealed for 10 or 15 yrs and it cleaned up like new with elbow grease. Maybe it's the Behr stain because I took two year old scrap 2x12's and made flower boxes which turned into a potato chip looking box after staining. Luckily the entire frame is coated with EPDM liner so I won't have to replace that but after 6 years I'm looking at probably 20% loss of deck and railings which is expensive with this sized deck. Will contact manufacturer and see what they say but don't expect satisfaction. May 28, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by One good, one not so good I would recommend this lumber but before leaving store check that all of the pieces are straight. One was straight, the other had a bow in it not discovered before using it. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by no problems Used these to replace my old deck, hand picked all my pieces. Layed them out at home for approx. 2 weeks to acclimate to the weather and dry out prior to installing. Only had 2 boards warp. My deck is 25ft wide so I cut my boards down to varying lengths (much like a wood floor) so as not to have continuous joints. Installed my boards using Deckmate coated all purpose 9x2-1/2" (6.35cm) Star Drive Screws. I highly recommend these as they do not strip out like other screws (I did pre drill my holes prior to screwing down). Always trim off an inch or so off of the ends of your boards as they are not always square. Make sure that the crown is always up, and above all MEASURE, MEASURE, MEASURE. Let it dry in for about 30-40 days prior to painting or sealing. . Use these few tips and you will be as happy with your deck as I am mine. Hope this was helpful. October 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by poor quality all but one of the boards was undercut, the manager said if we wanted 12' we would need to say so and pay more August 12, 2014
