    the first one is california ghostwood or(driftwood) or grapewood. It depends on the species of wood that it accually is.Some say its oak some say its not.
    The second is wild grapevine. Its what alot of wreaths are made of. Totally safe if there are no chemicals on it. If you look at my thread "updated tat' the curved branches you see are wild grapevine. It hangs of the trees here all over the place. Very easy to find and the crabs love it. If you can find it in a wooden area it would be alot better than buying it at a craft store not knowing what has been sprayed on it.

    If I could find these in the wild I wood, I live in Maine and my area is all pine. I haven't even seen an oak tree since I moved out of the city.
    What is grapewood? Does it come from grape plants? It might be a silly question but I don't know much about them.

    I havent found anything on what ghostwood is. But I have read that grapewood could be part of the grapevine.

    Its literally all over the place.It will grow up trees and then grow down once it has rapped around a limb.But it wil also grow into another tree. Some trees get so much of it it will choke the life right out of the tree. You have to cut it down but if it attached to the tree next to it that one has to be cut down too.
