Well, depending on the chemistry of the wood and its density, it may or may not just rot and fall apart in your tank. Commercially available driftwoods tend to sink (which most wood won't without being waterlogged), take forever to rot underwater, have cool shapes and are safe for aquarium use.

If you're sure that you can find wood that's safe to use in your tank (which might be a bit of a gamble) I'd make sure it's dense enough to sink or at least waterlog easily.
