Yes it does, I go daily trying to collect driftwood and plants,rocks from my local waterways and forests, Only two times in 10 years have I come across driftwood shaped by nature that blew me away. I at times widdle driftwood down for use and shape, I still need to get me a chainsaw.

I made the mistake of buying this piece of wood from Africa because it claimed to "sink immediately to the bottom" and it's the world's most durbale wood. It claims to not rot like driftwood does. Now as we speak, I'm watching it float around the top of my tank and I'm wondering if Petco will take it back wet. lol.

thats not the case in brazil since the dry session can be very dry the wood gets naturally heavy as a way to keep water inside during the dryness the wood is naturally heavy and since its the heart wood it will never rot.
