Default Royal Poinciana, Can I smoke with this?

Has anyone ever heard of a Royal Poinciana tree? I've been told it's a hardwood but don't have a clue if you can smoke with it.

These two links give some info on the tree:

http://www.tcpalm.com/news/2009/jun/...al-to-prevent/

http://www.gardenguides.com/taxonomy...delonix-regia/

One says it's not toxic to livestock or other plants and the other says it releases a chemical that prevents other plants from growing or stunts their growth but can't say if it is toxic to humans.


This doc also says there are poisons in the seed pods.

Here I live in the TC Palm area and I couldn't find the information you did. I thank you for such a fine reply.

I will not be using this wood for anything at all.

Jim,

You could always call Mounts Botanical Garden with any questions regarding local wood.

They used to be in the median on the main road going onto Palm Beach and they are huge trees. I don't know if they are still there after all the hurricanes.
