This winter I cut down pine trees (have way too many of them) as a supplement to the goats hay. They chomped through them happily all winter and all 5 bore healthy babies in the spring. So I'd guess its not a problem. What they really love is cedar trees (which are also a natural dewormer), they ate every needle off the cedar I cut down before they would touch the pine needles.
