Branches For An Enclosure

Hello! I’m back again to bug you about *sticks*. Don’t remember me? Oh okay :’D (lol)
Anywho, I got some sticks from next to a creek. They’re nice and bark free (I think it looks prettier), and clear of funguses and bugs. The only problem is that because they were on the ground and beside moving water, I can’t tell if they were from cedar or pine trees. I did a (finger)nail test on a couple and they’re soft enough to mark, but then again that could be from sitting next to water all that time.
So my question is, are these sticks safe to use because they’ve been basically transformed by the water, or should I try to find some that I KNOW aren’t from dangerous trees?

Do you actually have cedar trees where you live? Maybe a woodworker could tell you which it is.

Unfortunately we have a lot here actually. That’s a good idea, asking a woodworker. Now to find one…
