Could i have driftwood on a saltwater tank?

Have a 90 gallons FO tank that I transition from brackish water into pure salt but I have never removed the driftwood any suggestions?

The saltwater will deteriorate it pretty quickly and I'm not sure what it might leech into the system.

Fishing piers are made of wood?
Mangrove trees live in saltwater.

For a fish only tank it's probably OK to leave it there until it starts to fall apart.

I saw a tank on youtube with it in. If it starts decaying take it out, otherwise it should be fine.
