The Q&A Archives: Poison Trees?

Question: Could there be anything poisonous about golden chain trees?
flowers, pollen, leaves? anything harmful for pets or children?

Answer: I am not aware of any particular concerns about this tree such as there would be with poison ivy, although certainly individuals sensitive to tree pollen or with sensitive skin might want to avoid it and children and pets should not be eating any type of typically "non-food" plant such as this. You might also check with your pediatrician and veterinarian.
