I think the birds would love a tree!

I don't have a bird room, so I can't help you with an actual tree, but make sure that the type of tree you get isn't toxic to the birds.

This website has a list of toxic and non toxic trees for budgies.

yes,wanted them to play around trees as well so was thinking of getting one soon
quick question:
can birds fall ill due to the presence of a tree?if i get an untreated tree which was grown naturally,but what if it catches insects ....?and we arent supposed to use insecticides either,so what do i do when such a situation arises?

Hmm, I don' know how to answer that.

Well, if the tree is indoor, there isn't a big chance of it catching insects. It may be better to get a tree that doesn't have any fruits, as those tend to attract them. As long as there aren't any toxic materials on the tree, and that the tree itself doesn't have toxic parts, I doubt that the birds will become ill from it.

In my house, we do have a large jade plant which looks pretty much like a mini tree. It's an indoor plant and the budgies LOVE playing in the branches. It's not toxic to them, and they are able to nip and bite at the branches as well as the petals/leaves.

It's not clear, but in this old photo you can see the jade tree in the background with other plants. (The set up has been changed and the cacti were moved elsewhere when the budgies took an interest in the jade, this picture is quite old).



We've never had an issue with it catching insects, although it has been brought outside for some sun before in the summer.

I would think Java, and Bamboo are good trees. Neither of them flower so you shouldn't have an issue with insects.

As a plant lover AND a bird lover, I will say that ALL plants get insects, even those that don't flower. You can bring a plant into a house and not know that it has bugs. And bugs can crawl in through the window wells. The biggest issues to watch for are spider mites, scale, and fungus gnats. Plants with infestations of those will have to be treated if you want them to live. The best nontoxic line of defense is cleaning the leaves with dish soap or rubbing alcohol (the alcohol evaporates quickly).

As for safe plants and trees, there are many lists online. If you don't see a plant listed as safe, you have to assume that it is NOT safe. Any plants with a white sap is usually dangerous -- rubber trees, for instance.

Last week, I gave my budgies a branch from a loquat tree, and they LOVED it. Had it stripped of bark within days, so I had to give them another, which they stripped quickly, too.

So that's a tree you know is safe. However, beware that any tree you put with the birds they will be likely to chew on, and once the bark is stripped off, a branch will die. So you are likely to end up with a DEAD tree.
