Accidental ingestion can cause the following poisoning:

  • diarrhea
  • nausea
  • Vomit

Wear gloves and, if possible, eye protection when cutting the cypress. Avoid touching your face or even your mouth and eyes with your hands during care work.

Keep your distance from the neighboring property
