Default Bark on the flavor wood

I cam across a bunch of plum and apple wood I plan on using as flavor chunks. It all has the bark still on it. I've heard that bark can make for bitter smoke? Should I remove the bark? I've seen a lot of stick burners who burn the bark and all...Any advise would be appreciated!

Burn the bark. If there is any fungus, take that off.
