tree branches for peachfronted conure chews

Yesterday I posted a photograph of my Yellow-fronted Amazon chowing down on some fresh-cut mulberry branches, but you may rest assured that the Peach-fronted Conures also ate their share. I have a couple rules about tree branches for my pets:

  1. I have to know for an absolute certainty that the tree in question is bird-safe. Mulberry, yes. Birch, yes. Pecan, yes. Manzanita, yes. However, there is a much longer list of species that I just don't know about. For instance, I just read in the Wikipedia that "pine" is safe. Oh, really? ALL pine? Because I heard something different from the Cookie's former owner, a cabinet-maker, who told me a story about Cookie getting sick from chewing a certain type of pine. Or maybe I remember it wrong, and it was a certain type of oak. Doesn't matter. I don't know FOR SURE, so my birds are not getting access to those branches.

  2. I must know for an absolute certainty that the tree branches in question have never been sprayed. That's easy with my mulberry tree, as I started it myself with a stick from the swamp, and I have never sprayed it or done anything to it other than hack it down from time to time to entertain my birdies.
