Pine as driftwood

Hi,

I'm wondering has anyone ever used well seasoned pine in a tank. I picked up a few bits today and am wondering if they are safe. The tree was knocked 4 or 5 years ago. And all the bark has came off.
I've done some research and I'm getting conflicting answers.
Some saying not to use it. Some saying it's fine just won't last as long as hard wood, which I don't really mind as I'll probably change my mind in a year or 2 and escape anyway.

Has anybody any experience or opinions.

I'm pretty sure it's Scott's pine if that makes any difference.

Hi
I used pine many times in my tanks. No problems at all. It does last a lot shorter tho, especially if you have any plecos. It's a lot easier for them to munch on softer wood.

Of course we taking well seasoned, no sap wood.

That's good to know, thanks for the heads up.... I always thought it was a definite no no.
