So this is my first spring here and it looks like the yellow stuff that coats anything and everything and that we were warned about has started in earnest. Also over the past few days I'm starting to experience typical seasonal allergy symptoms. Just wondering how long the tree pollen season typically lasts around here?

thanks

the yellow pollen lasts 2-3 weeks. Allergy season from other trees and flowers can last all spring. Most people are not allergic to pine pollen, but other stuff blooming at the same time.

Not long, but it'll feel like forever.

Last year the pollen got into my rain barrels and formed an inch-thick layer of really disgusting crap that stunk to high heaven. This year I'm covering them until the outbreak is over. Something to think about.

Ok on the same subject, has anyone ever had an allergic skin reaction to the pine pollen? I've been itching horribly all day and at one point got a lot of pollen on my arm which itched a lot more. So power of deduction: its an allergic reaction for the pollen? A shower tonight helped a tad.

I usually give my son his allergy meds from March to May here. This year, I started the last week of February because of our early spring and he became stuffy. I usually have to do another round in the Sept/Oct time frame for about 6 weeks -- not sure if it is leaf mold or folks growing new grass that sets him off.

best of luck!

Pine pollen makes me itchy if I touch it. Sucks.

I am not sure this will help much. I would guess the majority of the pollen ended up in your barrel when the rain washed it off the roof.

The right answer in NC is until first frost. Something is always releasing pollen here.
