    Question about feeding poisoned tree branches

    Hey,
    I have 3 gorgeous piggies, and I have recently wanted to introduce some small tree branches in their hutch for them to chew on and play with.
    We have a mulberry tree, which I've read is fine for piggies, but I got told by our landlord that the tree was poisoned 2 years ago. since then the tree has never been sprayed with anything, and it seems very healthy.
    But I'm not sure if there could still be poison in the branches, and I'm unsure if it would he okay to give them to my pigs.
    Does anyone know if it will be okay?

    i wouldn't risk it. when i was a kid i let my hamster chew on tree branches, and she passed away in the night. i don't know what type they were, but it was still so heart-breaking. i still feel guilty and sorry. yours may be okay, but there's still a chance.
