We recently moved to the Black forest which is great...The last few weeks I've noticed a lot of pine dust on my outside things...How long does this season last?
It's like a green Chalk covering everything...

I've got both the pine pollen and cottonwood fluff all over at my place. I think they'll both be over in a couple weeks, maybe sooner if we get a good hard rain to wash it all away.

BTW, I always put off refreshing the mulch in my garden until this stuff is gone. Otherwise it just gets messed up right away with tree crap.

The pine pollen can be an allergen for some people. I had a friend who moved out of the Black Forest after his kids developed asthma from that pollen.

It's an example of why I always recommend renting for 1 year before buying a home in a new environment.

I think the pine pollen is done - we just need a good rain to wash it all down.

Hiking up at the Florissant Fossil Beds today the tree pollen was pretty extreme - a breeze-gust would come by and the sky would look like a dust devil remnant but it wasn't dust - the sky was filled with pollen.

By the end of the month of June, that green dust will be gone. It appears in June and goes away by the 4th of July.
