As much wood As a woodchuck would, if a woodchuck could chuck wood.
this is the sensible answer.
i have read the links provided for the same question answered by the
google researchers but it is very complex i could not understand it
did u understand it?

After much research from internet which iam doing for the past 6 years.
i have found a reasonable answer for your q.

About 700 pounds. Compared to beavers, groundhogs/woodchucks are not
adept at moving timber, although some will chew wood. (At Cornell,
woodchucks that gnaw their wooden nest boxes are given scraps of
2-by-4 lumber.) A wildlife biologist once measured the inside volume
of a typical woodchuck burrow and estimated that -- if wood filled the
hole instead of dirt -- the industrious animal would have chucked
about 700 pounds' worth
