Could someone identify what kind of wood this perch is?

I'm familiar with Manzanita and Java. But I can't figure out what this other kind I use for Kili is called. Kili's tree is made of this and so are the perches in her cage:

looks like it may be bottlebrush Michael. http://www.waynesparrotstuff.com/parrot-playgyms/tabletop/medium i could be mistaken though because these have lots of V shaped branches instead of your tree's mainly straight branches. But it could all depend on the tree, if it was mature, young or old.

Not bottlebrush... the bark is too smooth. I have one like that to but I don't know what kind of wood it is.

I tried looking at a few shops here for those but only found the 'usual suspects' and a new perch made out of Fir
