Removing this board from the wall


I am trying to figure out how to remove this board that covers a wall in one of the bedrooms. I have removed all the screws and none of them have anchor screws holding this board up. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Welcome to the forums.

I see two pictures. Are they of the same "wood" ?
The right picture looks like paneling and it could be held up with mastic on the back and small nails in the dark stripes.

You will probably need to start in one corner using a flat wrecking bar or maybe a putty knife to remove the paneling.

I too am confused by the pics
The first pics looks like thick wood but the second pic looks like paneling. Paneling is rarely thicker than 1/4" so if it is paneling, it may need to be removed to reveal how what it is attached to is secured to the wall. That said, it isn't a big deal to repair the drywall if it gets damaged during the wood removal process.
