Your average bandsaw isn't going to cut it - literally and figuratively, you need an industrial bandsaw that will have the power and capacity for that material. It will be best to take it to a shop and have them resaw it for you. While you're there, they can either plane it smooth or run it through a sander if you want a fairly smooth finish.
