Bob, assuming the tree is not hollow, you will still lose something like 2" in the very middle due to the pith hole that runs through it. Assuming it is 24" in diam, you should lose about 2-3" per side for white sap, but if it were me, I would leave in on the lumber for added contrast. Taking those numbers, you should be able to get several boards 10" wide depending on how you have the logs sawn. Plain sawn is going to yeild you the most large boards, but there are two or three other ways to saw it, depending on what you want to do with the lumber......other than gunstocks.
