That bigger stem looks to read a bit of a twist. Heart is off center also, so expect boards to twist. Should be fun to read / watch as it dries and walks. Post pics when / after you mill...Well, went and picked my trailer up today. Now just have to process it into smaller pieces. Probably take the bigger one to a guy I met the other day with a mill. He said if I need anything sawed, he would saw it. I have a big walnut at the farm I need to grab as well. Maybe a cherry too.

Know your desired sizes, thickness & widths and give it a go. Don't wait, the wood will check, mill it soon. Seal the ends before milling, and seal again after. Sure the sawyer will box pith or split it out. Weight the stickered stack, and keep out of sunlight. Keep close eye, for mold or stain. Might need to mist with a bleach fog. I use my gas powered fruit tree sprayer on fog setting if needed.It does twist. Would you wait a while before you had it sawed or saw and sticker or?
