How many? Wood is still a commodity. You won’t sell it at HD prices. It’s not top stuff if it is not riftsawn or quarter sawn. Timbers for fence posts are generally sawn as a boxed heart. Contains pith and young wood—not worth much contains forces that will cause it to cup or twist if cut to boards. As posts mill run—usually $1-2 each in upper midwest. Green ROM (run of the mill) white oak boards, no bark, no sort is worth $.75 ft. by the unit 500-1000bd.ft on the high end. This includes very little Select and would grade out mostly #2 Common or less. Use it yourself or find a party that will give you what you want for it. Call me—Bought enough bad lumber. Good luck.
