when i was at school, i set up a driftwood tank for my ADFs. what i did was i went around and picked up some branches that had fallen from the oak trees in my area (i go to school in a very rural area). i scraped off all the bark and boiled the wood many times. after that i put it into my tank and it worked fine. i guess as long as you have a hardwood that isnt just off the tree, things will work. fresh branches still have sap that can leech.
