    A leaf clean up customer asked me if "red maples" were poisonous to dogs? She wants to put a couple in her yard in the spring.

    Anyone? Thanks.

    Red maples seem to be poisonos to horses, can't find anything about dogs.

    Hi Gogetter,

    As posted on this site, red maples are listed under the plant heading of "Potential Poisons for Pets..."
