Usually with nut allergies you know which specific nuts you are allergic to.
I'm allergic to almonds. No other tree nuts. If you're allergic to all
nuts then I'd avoid acorns. Yes, they're edible. But oak and acorn are not
the same. If you're allergic to oak then that's another matter. However
I'd be willing to bet it is the oak pollen you are allergic to and not the
wood itself.
