Acacia georginae is a perennial tree which is native to Australia and which has been introduced into the United States. Common names for it include Georgina Gidgee, Georgina Gidyea and Poison Gidyea. It grows to a height of 3-8m.
Its uses include timber and fuel.
Primarily the seed pods can be extremely poisonous, since they may contain what are called organic fluoroacetates. Unfortunately, sheep and cattle sometimes are poisoned after grazing on the pods.
