You should not use green wood in a tank. <that is what you have if you just pick branches off a tree.> For one, green wood will contain sap, some species of wood's sap is toxic. <And the bark will rot & pollute your tank. Seasoned wood have had the bark & most of the sapwood rotted off, you are left with the heartwood.>
If you want to collect driftwood for your tank, you should use only hardwood, and the wood should be aged at least one season - a couple years or more is better. Then you need to boil & water log it. It is a fair bit of work to prepare wood to be tank safe.
