Question toxic trees

As this is the christmas season, are christmas trees toxic to the Eclectus breed?

Re: toxic trees

I don't know what your Christmas tree is, whether it's pine or something else, but here is a list of safe and unsafe woods: Bird; Birds: Safe, Toxic Trees, Woods. Safe Tree Wood. Parrots. Parrot cages.
I think it applies to all parrot species.

Re: toxic trees

While pine and fur trees ( most commonly used as Christmas trees ) are not toxic per say I'd be careful of the pitch or pine tar (sap) that comes from fresh cut trees, the thing that would concern me more is that most Christmas trees today are commercially grown on tree farms and thus may have been treated with pesticides, other concerns about Christmas trees of a non toxic nature would be sharp needles, electric cords and lights, plastic ornaments, tinsil and other harmful decorations, probably best to keep the fids away from the trees, better to be safe than sorry

Re: toxic trees

Here in nz we get the lovely pohutakaws trees
not that many people use them as an actual Xmas tree but they are known as the kiwi Xmas tree because it's the time of year they flower

Mikki and pheonix both love them and enjoy spreading red all thru the house and I love the soft earthy smell they have

I'm making the birds their own Xmas tree for Xmas day
pohutakawa , popcorn strings , cranberries and cherios forage toys , pellet based Ginger bread men and some other odds and ends should keep them busy
Love me love my birds
