No pinecones! Try to avoid anything with natural stuff in it, like dried fruit or wood. Wooden ornaments if they are sealed/treated should be okay.

I agree, no pinecones! And try to avoid taking
anything that looks like one (even if it isn't).
Sometimes it's hard to see wether it's real or not.

Yes. They will almost certainly charge you for destruction of them otherwise - (regardless of whether they are reall or not). The one thing AQIS always look out for is Christmas decs.
