Will Poison From A Golden Chain Tree Be Harmful To Animals

Question From: G. Keyser - Oregon City, Oregon, United States
Q: We are considering adding a 'Golden Chain Tree' to our back yard and wonder if the poisonous aspects of the plant would be of concern to household pets or visiting animals. (cats, dogs or squirrels, etc.)

A: Many plants in the garden are poisonous. I have never read of Golden Chain Tree poisoning. That said, today dogs tend to chew on everything. If you are concerned, plant another specie. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
