Hi Irina

This is a great thread. Are Maple or Rowan branches safe - hope so as they are large mature trees and my silver birches are on a year in the ground so I best not molicate them!

What type of Maple tree? Some should have the bark removed as they MAY harbour a certain type of fungi. I know Japanese and Field Maples are fine.

Rowan, as in Mountain Ash, is also fine.

Thanks I would have assumed the berries are posionous.  The Maple is a great big one maybe Canadian style?  Excuse my ignorance I'm better with flowers and shrubs but not the latin names!

Thanks

Rowan berries are parrot safe. If you go through the diet section it names safe foods. They love em

I don't suppose I can use eucalyptus tree branches can I? I have the hugest tree in my garden that I grew from a twig, it really needs pruning right now and it would be fantastic if I could use the branches.

some people put eucalyptus on a safe list, some on a dangerous one. I know Pip uses eucalyptus (you do, don't you, Pip?) and I assume have never had any issues with it, and lots of people give eucalyptus branches to their budgies, so I think its pretty safe  :biggrin:

Oooh, this is wonderful to hear. I would scrub it and strip the bark off before I give it to her ofcourse.

I also noticed that a house down the road to me that has a large and in my oppinion 'over grown' magnolia. I might do the neighbourly thing and prune it for them, under the cover of darkness of course. How kind am I? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Thank you for the information on the eucalyptus.

No need to strip the bark. Just give it a good scrub and a spray with F10  :thumbsup:

You sound like a very good neighbour  :biggrin:

I found this site yesterday when I was trying to identify the fallen tree next to the house.
http://www-saps.plantsci.cam.ac.uk/trees/intro.htm
Its helped me identify at lot of the trees around our back garden, most of which are parrot safe I'm glad to say.

F10 is a parrot safe disinfectant, you can buy it from Scarlett's ,it's about 8.50 for a tiny bottle but you only use a little bit and dilute it  with a litre of water so it lasts for months. You can use it to disinfect everything from the toys to the cages , if you dilute it even more you can rinse the sprouts and food in it.  There is a post on here telling ou all about it and how to dilute it. I have t  o go back to the post every time I do a bottle!   I think  it was 25 mils of  f10, to 5 litres of water.
