Default Olive wood in a aquarium

They have been removing a bunch of very old olive trees near me recently. Aftet taking a close look at it, it has some nice and gnarly bits that might look good in a aquarium. Is it safe and will it last? They are a very slow grower.

Go for it. I'd cut it and let it weather for a year though. Fresh wood in a tank will just grow fungus until all of the sugars & nutrients are leached out of the wood.
