Driftwood.... Requests?


I am going to slowly attempt to start collecting and selling driftwood. my question is, what sizes would most people want / what type? branches, roots, limbs etc?

Pieces with several branches that could be made into a moss tree would sell like crazy.

Pieces that look like manzanita or several limbs would sell quickly. Also, some people like myself would go for a bit larger pieces about 24 inches IMO.

Good luck!

Let me know once you have your driftwood ready to ship and possibly get some pictures up since I'm interested.
