According to a New York State wildlife expert, named  Richard Thomas... a woodchuck could chuck around 35 cubic feet of dirt per burrow...According to these calculations  if a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck an amount equal to 700 pounds.

(Note that, Compared to beavers, groundhogs/woodchucks are not so efficient at moving timber, although some do chew wood, so its faster if the wood was precut and ready to go!)
