The predominant tree on my property is Black Cherry.   The bark can kill horses/goats.   Fresh leaves can kill as well.

Does anyone know if this means I should not use it for a hugelkuture?

I see no reason not to use it for hugel culture as it would be buried with soil on top. Just don't have any leaves or bark exposed.  It will simply decompose.  Hugel culture is a great way to transform something that is a concern (over abundance of wood) for you and turn it into something useful for growing plants.
