Bay tree logs for smoking

Hi. I've been offered some bay logs (at a price!) and wondered if anyone has experience of them as smoke wood? I wanted apple, but the local tree surgeon has suggested this and can sell me a sackful. I don't want to spend £65 uk pounds if it isn't good on chicken / pork / beef ... Thanks!!!
And seeing as it's not referenced (that I can find) on any of the bbq sites, I'd err on the side of caution and say "thanks but no thanks".
