    WE just had to trim a jacaranda tree. Plenty of green for my goats but I don't want to give it without knowing if it is poisonous to them . does anyone know????

    I was told that if you wouldn't eat it and if you have doubt - Don't feed it to the goats. I know that anything that flowers is poisonous. Since I have never seen one of these trees, I wouldn't know if it flowers or not. Hopefully someone with a real answer will post soon. This is just the rule of thumb that I go by and it's worked for me. Hope it helps a little at least.

    thanks, it does flower heavily , they don't need it , it would only be a treat so I believe we will forgo it this time .

    thanks again
