In brief: Possibly
"peanuts are legumes, biologically unrelated to tree nuts.
But there is high level of allergic cross-reactivity between peanuts & tree nuts, meaning that people with tree nut allergies are at increased risk of developing peanut allergies. If you're diagnosed with a tree nut allergy, your allergist will advise you whether to avoid peanuts as well." see comment for more info.
