Default Desert Trees

I live in Tucson, Arizona. I'm not sure of our trees here in the desert that are safe for birds. I have heard the Mesquite is alright. I'll get a picture and post asap. I'll look up what other desert trees are fine and see if I can get pics and post as many desert trees as possible.

I will help out with some of the ones I use.
I do not think you want 250 + pics of just the eucalyptus family of trees? Just a general photo shoot should do you. Or maybe just some of the more common ones.
As far as I know all Eucalyptus are safe.
I will do some digging around and see what photos I have already.
And all these will be safe trees. Regardless of what One person has claimed on this forum.

By the way this is a great idea.

Bottle Brush Tree


Bottle Brush on the gym for the fids to chew.


Paper Bark Gum. This my Favorite, it has this super soft bark and very hard wood.

Banksia
Tree.


Banksia Cones.


Banksia Flower.


Banksia Flowers and foliage.


Manuka.
Mature Tree.


Wood collected from smaller trees. You can see why this wood is so sought after, as it has very varying thickness. Which gives the feet a good work out.


Kanuka.
There is not a lot of difference to the Manuka, except full grown they are much taller. Wood is about the same as Manuka.

Agonis.






Tortured Willow tree. (Also known as Twisted Willow)


Tortured Willow foliage


Copper Sheen.


Sorry this is going to take some time as I have to find the trees around town and get pics sorted out.
So I will keep editing, as I get these.

I think a description and pics of unsafe trees would be very helpful!

This is incredibly helpful, I am new to keeping cockatiel's and live in New Zealand. I am wondering if wattle trees are OK? does anyone know? Also can a put eucalyptus branches including leaves in my cage for my bird to have some fun?

What about Magnolia, Pine, or Holly?

I only have one of each of those, and then a Red Maple

[edit] I've looked it up, and I've found a few sites that say Holly is toxic, and Magnolia and Pine are safe. I'll try to get some photos in soon

Amz, I'm pretty sure only the wood of pine is safe; the bark and foliage are toxic.

I decided not to use it anyhow, because there are specific types of pine that are toxic from what I can understand, and we don't know what type of pine we have.

I'm just going with the magnolia. Thank you for warning me though!
