I've heard that hardwoods not only last longer in the water, but also that pine resins tend to repel fish. After a couple of years the resin is gone, but until then pine cover is not as productive as hardwood cover.

Anybody have info or experience on this point? I'm getting ready to add cover, would like to know if it's worth specifically picking out hardwoods.

Have used them all. Hardwood does last longer IMO. Never had a problem with either. xmas trees do not in my experience force fish away. See pics below. Xmas trees are about 1 mth old and filled with fish and Bryozoa . Exposure to air/water/air causes wood to deteriorate quicker.
