Seagrape wood (Coccoloba uvifera) is a safe wood for birds. Many of the large aviaries here in Florida use it.

You will have to ensure that the wood is safe to use. Pollution, chemicals or bacteria that could be on a tree in an urban setting needs to be taken into account.
Although the tree itself might be safe, what is on it might not be and as budgies explore things and gnaw on everything you will have to be very careful to make sure the wood isn't going to hurt them just from where you live.

thank you , i read that it is better to sterilize it before giving it to the budgies


I imagine that is not sterilized with alcohol because that may damage the budgie so how do i sterilize it

thanks for the info

You can bake the branch in the oven at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes.
You can also rinse it very well with boiling water afterward and let it air dry.
