Tree Pollen

Birch Tree

Its starting to become that time of year again where eyes get itchy and noses begin to run.

Here at Broadleaf working with all different kinds of trees and hedges we no exactly what its like to be constantly wiping your nose and itching your eyes which is why we produced some information for you on Tree Pollen.

For most people throughout the UK grass pollen is the key trigger of their hay fever, but if you seem to get hay fever symptoms earlier on in the year it could be that you are one of the fair amounts of people who are allergic to tree pollen.

At Broadleaf we cover areas such as; Rochester, Medway, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells and Seven Oaks which means we spend the majority of our summer and seasons before up in trees.

In the UK the trees that are most likely to cause earlier hay fever are birch, alder, hazel and horse chestnut. If you believe you are allergic to tree pollen then you would find that your symptoms are worse between March and May.

As we are all professional tree surgeons we know all kinds of information about trees.

The birch tree releases its pollen between March and may, the hay fever sufferers are more than likely to experience the worst of their symptoms during April. Birch tree pollen counts will be at their highest on dry and warm days especially if there is a breeze over areas wooded with birch trees.

An interesting fact for all of us from Broadleaf if you are allergic to birch pollen then you may react to celery, raw tomato, are carrots, apples and pears.
