    I saw an opportunity to reuse something but I wondered if it was OK. A friend of mine is going to clear a small piece of land that's been a little overrun the last few years. On this piece of property are several three to four inch thick saplings. I was wondering if they would make good roosts. I wasnÂ’t sure if the sap would affect them or something.

    The saplings will make great roosts! We recycle most of the downed tree limbs in our yard for our chickens.
