I have Carolina Cherry Laurel trees. I know they produce a non edible fruit, but is the fruit actually poisonous? I have a beagle.

The cherries are only toxic if eaten in large quantities. I would remove the fruits that are within reach of your pup, just to be on the safe side. Prune them off the plant and rake them up off the soil just to remove the potential for illness. Best wishes with your pup and your garden~
