Can Old Drift wood be in a Tank ?

Hello I have a peace of what I believe is driftwood.. Well I'm 99% sure it is driftwood. But I got it in the woods there was a lot of it and was pointing up words twisting and spiraling. Look to be roots of the tree.

But I took a lot of it to use as decor around the yard and it has sat outside for about a year. It seems rotted in some spots and soft.

Would this be okey in a aquarium if I was to scrub the rotted wood off ?

I don't want to buy drift wood because pet smart by me doesn't carry aquarium driftwood they just have driftwood for lizards, etc. But it isn't cheap. I would post a pic but I don't see the option to ?

Looking forward to you response!

Do you know what kind of tree it came from? Hardwood or evergreen? Alison

I'm not sure what type it is... There where very tall trees and the driftwood was near the buttom. I would go look but the spot is about a 1/2 mile away and there's currently 2 feet of snow so it would be difficult.
