In brief: Yes

Botanically, coconuts are most closely related to other palms and betel nuts.
They come from coconut palm trees and are not closely related to most other tree nuts. While botanical relationships are not the only factor that determines whether two foods will be cross-reactive, foods that are close biological relatives often share allergenic proteins like cashew, pistachio.
