Can anyone answer ASAP if shagbark hickory trees are safe? The leaves, the fuzzy green stuff, the nuts? We have a lot of the pollen right now coming down. I don't think the goats would eat it... but they would surely enjoy the nuts I bet. They aren't gonna be with the tree, but stuff still falls in the pasture.

I could not find anything about the blooms. I did find that there are no poisonous species of hickory.

I couldn’t find anything that says it IS poisonous, so I’m guessing it is like everything else where you never want too much but it shouldn’t harm them. My only concern is the pollen pods causing allergies, I will have to keep watch for that.

Those are just like blooms from oak, pecan and walnut, aren't they? Should be okay in small doses at first. Freddie and Eddie can figure it out by now.
