So I am about to give the lilac tree in our back garden a hair cut when I randomly thought "I wonder if this is safe for the mice?" We've lived in this house for 15 years and never used any weedkiller near it although I don't know if the previous tenant did. Would the lilac tree's branches be okay for the mice to play on and chew? I also have a rather large honeysuckle thing and a wild rose bush (which I would de-thorn first) and was wondering if these would be safe as well. I hope so because it would give the mice something different to play with whilst also meaning that the branches don't end up in the local landfill!!If they are I can freeze them or bake them in the oven first to ensure there are no nasty creepy crawlies. Any comments welcome!! Thank you!!!
