Hi.. I would like to include some tree bark on crafts projects.
Can anyone tell me the bark of which tree would be best for a material that does not fall apart too easily, and also how to be sure there are no insects living in the bark....Don't want anyone to have a suprise!
I live in New York and would like to use materials found on my own property.

Around here we have shagbark hickory trees. My brother would use the bark to cover wooden birdhouses.
Here's a pic of the one he did for me.
