I’ve sawn wood like that, and it’s a gamble; probable beautiful wood, potential rocks. The dirt is almost guaranteed, and it dulls a blade so most sawyers (myself included) will use an old blade when trying to cut one up. Rocks instantaneously remove all semblance of sharpness, and are the worry. Sometimes you gotta take chances, you just need to figure if you can afford the sharpening fees to get the wood. The wood will tend to be highly figured with a lot of tension so it likes to crack, making the drying process important to deal with. Best of luck to you if you choose to move forward with it.
