    Well, DH just cut limbs off a sycamore tree and wants to feed the leaves to the goats. Does anyone know if sycamores (or buttonball/ are they the same thing?) are ok for goats? I have no idea. *lol*
    It looks like the tree is either a sycamore or a buttonball, I am not sure if they are the same....
    Thanks for the help!

    I know sycamore isn't used for woodworking because you can get sick from the dust. I also did a quick search and ..........."Sycamore: Fruit and seeds are deadly to grazing stock." I wouldn't give it to them just to be safe.

    Do you remember the page where you found that? I have searched for the past 30 minutes and the little info I did find pointed in the "ok" direction. This is so confusing.
