If it's seasoned, why not give it a try?

I know the fig fruit has a latex type sap that causes a skin irritation to some people.  Don't know what it would do to the taste of your food or your lungs if you inhale it.  If you are trimming before bud break you won't have a lot of sap in the wood so you may be ok.

Talking about figs.  Just about all summer while I'm grilling I pick a few figs and put them on the grill.They are great, The ones that make it inside get a little cream cheese.
