Actually almost any wood, if not all, can be toxic to one or the other individual. Including woods such as pine and maple. Some people a certain type of wood won't bother at all, the next guy in line it will cause all sorts of problems to.
There is tons of info out there on-line. All you have to do is a simple search, using something like 'toxic woods' as a search subject. One or two of the South American woods can be even deadly to a human, if not treated properly and on time - these woods are not normally harvested, and if they are, special precautions are taken.
My preference anymore is wood native to my state, and that is the only wood I buy anymore, except for plywood; I'm not sure if plywood trees are native or not.
I particularly love popular wood. Free wood is always popular, no matter where it comes from.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
