Searching for answers for your question, I
in Wikipedia that "a New York fish and
wildlife technician named Richard Thomas had
calculated the volume of dirt in a typical
25–30-foot (7.6–9.1 m) long woodchuck burrow and
had determined that if the woodchuck had moved an
equivalent volume of wood, it could move "about
700 pounds (320 kg) on a good day, with the
wind at his back". Another study, which
considered "chuck" to be the opposite of
upchucking, determined that a woodchuck could
ingest 361.9237001 cm3 (22.08593926 cu
in) of wood per day."
I don't know why they're talking about 'chucking'
dirt, when the question is clearly about 'wood'.
And there seems to be a question about what
'chuck' means, from the answer about 'upchucking.'
My son-in-law says you'd count the number of
woodchucks and the number of trees, and the answer
would be the number of trees per woodchuck.
Thanks for your entertaining question.
