SAFE Wood

These trees are considered safe but will NOT be safe if toxic chemicals or insectides have been sprayed on them.
Branches can be scrubbed with F10 Veterinary Disinfectant, a 50/50 bleach/water solution, household white vinegar or baked in the oven at 250 degrees for about 45 minutes.
If you use bleach on the branches, you will need to rinse the branch several times then allow to dry completely before using in the cage.

**WARNING: Pressure treated lumber contains arsenic! "One ounce of treated wood dust per 10 pounds of body weight ingested may cause acute arsenic intoxication."
