Depends. One: on how much you remove with the plane. You can always “Skip-plane” and just knock the marks down a bit. Two: Use a scrub plane. And leave THOSE marks instead.

One can smooth the marks out entirely on the areas where the marks won’t show. I tend to get 80% of the marks off, makes doing any joinery work a little easier.

And a better look at the top.. Lot of the saw marks from being resawn were planed off. Still some left.
