will driftwood salt my tank?

I got some driftwood from the coast and soaked it for weeks and and boiled it and everything but I was wondering, doesn't it still have salt in it from the beach?

If there is any it won't be enough to do any damage as long as you do regular water changes. I've had drift wood from the beach in tanks in under a week without any ill effect.
