Yes, it seems Jem is afraid when he finds that Scout is chewing gum she found left in the tree. His response to her declaration that she'd been chewing it all day and hadn't died yet.....
Jem stamped his foot. "Don’t you know you’re not supposed to even touch the trees over there? You’ll get killed if you do!"
