Any softwood is toxic, but they can be used to build enclosures (except for cedar!) as long as they are properly sealed. Black Walnut is another wood I would be weary of, haven't heard anything about in terms of cage building, but I know the tree itself is quite toxic to most things... even most plants won't grow around it. All of these should be avoided as substrates, but all softwoods (except cedar) can be used in enclosures as long as they are sealed well. Birch is a hardwood, so its fine to use
