Item details

Whether you are a wedding or floral designer, bird owner, aquarium wood fanatic, craftsperson, and business owner or just appreciate beautiful, distinctive wood, we are pleased to offer you the finest in Manzanita Branches

Manzanita's hardness, unique qualities and shapes make it "the choice" for Aquarium Wood. Our Manzanita Aquarium driftwood packs provide a beautiful collection of sandblasted pieces varying in lengths and diameters. Sandblasted Manzanita wood has a coarse surface texture and a clean, elegant presentation... blondish in color.
The dead wood decays slowly and can last for many years, on and off the plant. Sunlight smooth’s and bleaches Manzanita to light grey or white, rendering it superficially akin to animal bones. Because of this and the stunted growth of many species, Manzanita is often collected in its more unusual shapes, giving it the nickname mountain driftwood. Manzanita wood is also used as perches for parrots and other large pet birds. The branches of the larger species are extremely long lasting for this purpose. Some aquarium keepers use sandblasted Manzanita as driftwood in planted aquaria because of its attractive forked growth and its chemical neutrality.
If properly cleaned and cured, it holds up well over extended periods of submersion. The wood is also resistant to the leaching of tannins into the water column, a problem often found with other aquarium driftwoods. When used as driftwood, Manzanita must often be either weighted down for several weeks or soaked first to counteract the wood's natural buoyancy when it has been dried and cured.
NOTE: We do not treat our Aquarium Wood, however soaking the wood prior to using in a tank is recommended for non-buoyancy and to leach out any tannins.
