Spring in Tennessee means warmer weather, longer days, and for some, pockets stuffed with tissues.Arborists examine tree leaves

Spring sees the onset of all kinds of pollen, from grass to ragweed, but if your allergies flare up in early to mid-spring, it’s likely that tree pollen may be playing a role.

Different plants produce pollen at different times of the year, and in Middle Tennessee, March through early June represents the peak of tree pollen season; April and May are generally the months that see the highest concentration of pollen.

To understand how tree pollen affects you, it’s important to know why it produces pollen in the first place. Most flowering plants (including trees) produce tiny particles of pollen that are transported in the wind or via pollinators such as birds and butterflies. The size, color and even visibility of a tree’s pollen to the human eye depends on the tree species.
