Does anybody know a way to get really gigantic pieces of driftwood, if you don't have access to a pond or stream to collect it yourself? I'm building a turtle pond, so I need places for my turtle to climb out and bask. The pond will be about two feet deep, so I need pieces that extend above that level of water. Thoughts?

Are you ever close to the ocean? Big pieces drift up on shore sometimes at high tide. Just be sure to soak it a long time to get the salt out of it - I soak mine from the ocean for about a month, changing water every few days. You can use a big RubberMaid or a barrel.

Yea, I live in NYC so there are plenty of beaches. There's a lot of competition for beachcombing, though. I guess I was worried about the salt. You've done it and it works ok?

Yes I have. All but one of my pieces came from saltwater beaches. Just soak it for at least a month changing the water regularly.
