The tree is about 16-18 inches around at the base and shrinks down to around 12-14 inches after about 16 foot or so. There are no limbs the first 20 foot of the log. My thoughts were to cut it into 2 9foot logs so I could get 8+ foot long boards. Or might do a 11 foot chuck and a 7 foot chunks to give me some longer stuff for siding and shorter stuff for projects

So at it’s biggest it’s ~6” in diameter? Or did you mean it’s 16-18” in diameter/across?

White oak is pretty rot resistant so I wouldn’t worry about it too much – even less so if you’re in a place with freezing temps
