Wood transmits sound better than air, but in the form of sawdust it might work better.  The issue would be absorbing moisture, insects, etc.  Maybe if you bagged it in plastic bags...

I wouldn't recomend using saw dust for soundproofing. Too many problems. But you could sell the saw dust and use the money to buy sound proofing, same thing. Do you want to sell some Hickery or Oak? And how much would you want per pound?  Joe K

Well, I'd have to ask.  Do you need it separated, such as oak from Cherry?  I don't think we have hickory.  Mostly we have red oak, white oak, cherry and walnut.  
Where do you live?
