Grapewood and manzanita are good

Manzanita works well, and I've used java wood, ghost wood, and mopani wood in tanks also.

Grapewood is safe, but rots really quickly. If you're using it non-structurally, and plan to allow it to turn to mush, you can probably incorporate it into a tank with frogs. If I were going to do this, even then I would use it sparingly, for that matter. Otherwise, I might reserve it for use as edible furniture in an isopod master culture.

There are many posts here about wood, but possibly searching by the name of the wood you're considering would work best.

I'd like to add a vote for cork bark (not wood, I guess, but close enough). Small flats are great for microfauna hiding spots; rounds are great for everything -- and they double the usable surface area (the outside, and the inside). The texture is quite natural for frogs (rainforests tend not to have a lot of barkless dry wood around...). Takes a lot to make it rot, too.

Driftwood that comes from freshwater lakes are also viable for use. Anytime these are very beautiful. Do not use driftwood from a salt water source.
