In this Delaware Online article, Mike Holleran from Davey’s Wilmington office talks about why many tree species are “ahead of schedule” when getting ready to bloom.
Spring is upon us, and if you’re a seasonal allergy sufferer and feel like the pollen seasons are getting longer and longer each year, you may be right.
In Delaware, signs of allergy season are happening two weeks earlier this year, according to local environmental experts, and could last longer than usual.
Wydila’s viewpoint lines up with what Mike Holleran has seen as assistant district manager for The Davey Tree Expert Company, a tree care service located in Wilmington. He explained that many tree species and plants are “ahead of schedule,” with many blooming now or getting ready to bloom.
“I think we’re going to see an earlier onset of the spring allergies,” Holleran said. “We’ve had a relatively mild winter with above-normal temperatures earlier than we should, and it sort of tricks trees and plants into blooming sooner than they should.”
