In brief: Almond Awareness

The simple answer is no.
Most allergies are mediated through an antibody-antigen interaction, which in the case of a food allergy requires ingestion of the substance. The only risk from the trees could be related to any pollen they produce which is not the same as a food allergy. A simple way to know for sure is to have a picnic by the trees with your emergency response meds and a friend.
