Hi guys...I’ve looked up the resources available but wasn’t able to find an answer...are branches from citrus trees (orange tree), Avocado tree safe? Also what tress other than pine/sappy ones should be avoided?

TIA :)

To my knowledge yes. So best way is to cut one... give it a scrub to clean off bird poo then let it dry out for 4-5 days in the sun. If it oozes anything then you don’t want it. Driftwood is great too if you live near the beach.

Thank you! & yes Not too far from HB, Seal Beach & Newport would do the same to the drift wood?

Oh hun go for the drift wood! I am in far northern Cali! We get lots here on our coast. So what I did is got my wood cut them to sizes that I wanted took dawn dish soap in hot water and a plastic scrub brush and scrubbed it down then let it dry out in the sun for 5 days. Works great!!! No oozing because the ocean has already taken care of that!
