Dogwood tree safe?

Post by KTM200xc » Sat Apr 08, 2017 4:46 pm

So I have a dogwood tree in my yard. I was wondering if anyone knew for sure if its safe? Like bark, leaves and flowers? I didn't see it on either food list. Its part of the Cornus tree family.
And how about Magnolia too? Its part of the Magnoliaceae family.
Just found this link that says dogwood is safe. Anyone know of this website? Would still like to know what everyone here thinks too. http://www.crabbyconnection.com/safe-food-list.html

I'd love to know this as well. My dogwood tree is blooming and if it's safe, maybe the crabs would enjoy some flowers/leaves/wood.

If that site says it's fine. Then I would also consider it safe. Memory serves me correct, the owner of that website might be on HCA

It doesn't mention if the flowers, leaves, or wood is safe- should I just assume all of it is safe?

Try writing to the owner!

Also - wow, their website has changed SO MUCH since I last made a purchase from them. It looks amazing!

p.s. - I also have wondered about dogwood... as well as spicebush and serviceberry.

P.p.s. - if you own the Canadian Crab Connection & happen to read this - kudos, I love the update, it's really quality!

Okay so late yesterday I gave them four flower petals from the dogwood. They ate them in a couple hours. :banana:
