    Are these safe for the goats to eat? Our neighbors have a lot of limbs down due to Ike, and they are just now getting around to cutting them up. A lot of them are sycamore( fuzzy little balls that hurt when slung by the lawnmower). I can get some of the smaller limbs for the goats if they are safe. I looked at the lists on Fiasco but its not there.

    I don't recall Sycamore as being toxic but as with anything new...too much will cause an upset. The only trees that I know of as being toxic are red maple, black locust and the pitted fruit trees( wilted leaves only) hemlock and certain ornamental evergreens. Sycamore wasn't on any list I've seen.

    Thanks Liz. I couldn't find it so I thought I would ask.

    I have a sycamore tree and have fed downed branches to mine with no problem. I think they'll love you for it. Denise
