Ok, from what I've been reading I think this will be okay but I definitely want to double and triple check before I even think about putting it in my tank. We have an apple tree that was damaged in a storm and died a little over a year ago. Will this wood be okay? Obviously I will be very careful with removing what bark is left and curing it. I'm probably going to boil and bake it, just to be extra careful. I included a couple pictures of the exact tree I plan to use.
