So I recently decided to add a tree stand for my two cockatiels next to their cage. The only issue was that I couldn’t find something narrow (but tall) enough and I didn’t want to spend an outrageous amount of money.

I found an Etsy shop that happened to be semi-local to me called Blooms & Branches (I am not affiliated in any capacity to them) that had these large grape wood trees on Etsy for relatively affordable. I really wanted more branches and a wider top however so I decided to also order two small 12” pieces of grape wood and expand the tree myself using jute twine :)

then I attached the entire thing to an IKEA Eket cabinet for stability and voila- a (half) DIY parrot tree stand perfect for small spaces!

Let me know your thoughts!

Nice.
Did you double check there’s no chemicals been used on the wood? I’m always worried about that with items that are not originally made for birds.

Yes, the shop primarily sells to animal owners, harvests the wood themselves, and claims all their woods are 100% pet safe. Along with hundreds of 5 star reviews :)

Great job! I have also used their grapewood in building playstands.

Very nice! I have a tabletop "tree stand" from them as well, but my Hahn's macaw does not like to perch or climb on it :crycry:. So, it sits on my desk next to her other play gym and holds toys for her!
