:heart_fill_with_lov Thank you all!! yeah my birdies love there new gym & are yelling at me now because I dont have them on it LOL!!


Kim this Tree holds very specially meaning for me!! I planted it the year chantellw as 1 yrs old in oregon on our farm...I brought with me 2 sticks & placed in a 5 gallon bucket of water to get it to root & then slipped in the soil..it grew here to be approximately 25 feet or better & the ice storm knocked it down some, so I am re rooting more trees from it & yes Kim & George you would be amazed at how small the stick can be that groes into a well established tree your birds will love you for planting & EASY EASY to grow!! :Bravo: me & debs gonna take videos of things we are gonna do while shes here & post for you hehe I will video the tree THATS NOW MUTILATED but will recover :lol1:

Daisy im thrilled it has inspired you :Bravo: & if your neighbor has the curly willow, if I were you, ide go ask for as many cuttings as I could get & take yourself a big bucket of water & stick them in it..they will root enough to be planted within a short period of time & they grow extremely fast..the trees can be shaped quite lovely & the benefits is your birds get to enjoy the occasional clipping of limbs & you can enjoy the beauty of the trees!!

the rope I used is what I bought from a "Bird toy Supply" online..it has no oil in it zero treatments that are toxic..and I added bird toy blocks & wiffle balls...heck you could even add empty rice boxes or just food mix boxes as the birds do enjoy shredding them :Sunshine:
now what I used to hold the limbs together prior to wrapping with rope is Zip Ties, they work excellent..get needle nose pliers to pull the zip ties taught & then clip close! wrap & tie..I even braided some of the rope..they are loads of fun to make & our birds look forward to climbing around on it everyday..

Good luck in making one for yourself!! & dont forget to post pics of it if you do make one!! we can all gather ideas from each other!! boing

yeah :) thanks for the tips...... ive made ropes before from garden string..... the sisle type ....... if you cut a log bit n twist it while 1 end is attached to something then hang something off the centre you can get out again..... ive used my keychain cuz it has a clip thing on...... then bring ends it twists up like a rope......all by its self :) YOu have to twist it loads tho and keep the string tight when you bring the ends together
you can do it several times to get a thick rope or twist several bitts together...... i dont think i explained that very well lol
