Yup, just make sure they weren't sprayed with any chemicals. I would also wash them with hot water and leave them to dry :).

You could also just bake them briefly :). I was thinking in terms of it being winter but I don't know cold it is in Scotland right now. The branches here are dried out and definitely don't have bugs! ;)

I haven't baked pine branches but when I baked pinecones I did it for 20 minutes at 225 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep an eye on them just in case.

Dried branches in cold weather probably won't have any bugs, though, and any laying on the ground shouldn't be sappy.
