In this WCNC segment, Matt Betz from Davey’s Charlotte office talks about why allergy season is starting early.  

Posted: February 23, 2023

If you're sniffling and sneezing more than normal this time of year, there's a reason. Experts say allergy season is here early.  

You know the saying, "stop and smell the roses"? Matt Betz, an arborist with The Davey Tree Expert Company, said that's probably not the best idea right now. 

"We’ve seen flowering fruit trees like cherries," Betz said. “It’s warming up, it’s starting to stay warm. You’re going to start feeling watery eyes, all that stuff that comes with allergies, especially as you see people out mowing lawns so they will be stirring up all of that pollen as well.”
