Byron how do I know the wood is dry? I guess I could look in my dads wood pile that has been cut a year or more that should be dry enough right?
If you want branches, they will fall off a tree and dry as they lie on the ground. I don't know how long this takes; it may also vary from wood to wood. Don't cut off a branch, that obviously is not "dry," unless of course you then let it dry. I mentioned previously about the oven drying, I do not know for how long this is needed. If you were to cut through it, you would see whether or not it is dry; a second similar sized piece for this test would work.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
