Re: [APD] Rhododendron branches
I would generally agree with this statement for woods used as
construction materials, but it doesn't apply to all wood. Many
deciduous trees are softwood and many conifers are hardwood.
Broadleaf evergreens (like Rhododendrons) and deciduous conifers also
further complicate things.
Regardless, I would think that Rhododendrons would be unsuitable as
they are generally toxic. The buds are resinous, so I would think the
wood would secrete some oils as well. The best test? Buy some feeder
guppes and use a good amount of rhododendron wood in their tank.
