Test your water source also, I'm assuming it is your tap water that you use for your aquarium. If you're tap is around 7 or higher, remove the wood. Or if you really want to keep the wood, maybe add a little bit of aragonite in the subtrate. This is often used in cichlid or marine tanks to raise/keep the pH high. Don't add allot to the substrate, just a little and wait a week or so after you tested before adding more. You can add chemicals, but it's usually cheaper in the long run to use aragonite.
