The following table shows the risk level* for each type of pollen. Severity of pollen is dictated by the PPM (Pollen Grains Per Cubic Meter) number.
The weather and time of the day can also be a big factor when it comes to how pollen count can affect you. As pollen falls to the ground when the heat dissipates during the evening, your seasonal allergy symptoms could get worse. This is why many allergy sufferers have worse symptoms at night. On rain days, vou might find your allergy symptoms are easier to manage as the rain tends to wash the pollen away.

*Derived by applying NAB guidelines to our data and taking percentile values from the extended season for each type of pollen.

Pollen Calendar

Weed pollen boosts pollen levels in April through May, but drops off toward the end of spring. Even though pollen from grass still picks up around this time, pollen counts typically stay lower from June to January. That said, if you want to keep seasonal allergies at bay during the months with high pollen counts, you might want to stay indoors, steer clear of parks and grassy areas, and have allergy relief at the ready.

    Ash

    Ash trees come in a variety of species (45 to 60 species worldwide), but the most common in the US is white ash. Ash trees can be found just about anywhere. Unfortunately for allergy sufferers, ash trees can produce pollen at almost any time of year depending on the species, but peak primarily in the spring. Ash tree allergy symptoms you might experience include runny nose, coughing, congestion and sneezing. To help avoid some of these symptoms, do your best to stay indoors. If these symptoms become difficult to manage on your own, ask your doctor if allergy medication might be best for you.

Birch tree pollen is released as early as January and can continue to be scattered by the wind through April. If you’re allergic to birch tree pollen, you might experience symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, wheezing, runny nose and watery eyes. Sign up for pollen alerts in your area, and help manage your allergy symptoms by keeping your windows and doors closed as much as possible.

    Elm

    Elm trees come from a family of about 35 species. Different species pollinate two times during the year: most in January or February (sometimes as late as April) and a few produce pollen during the late summer into November. However, pollination can still occur at any time of year. If you’re allergic to elm trees, you might endure symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, wheezing and itchy throat, nose and eyes. Help prevent allergy symptoms by getting personalized pollen alertsand limiting time outdoors when levels are high. You’ll want to wash your bedding and clothes more often too!

    Pine Trees can be found growing throughout the US. Fortunately, pine pollen allergies are fairly uncommon, but people can be severely allergic to pine nuts. Pine pollen allergy symptoms can include itchy eyes, runny nose, congestion and coughing. Pine nut allergy symptoms can be as severe as other nut allergies, including symptoms such as anaphylaxis, tightness in the chest and difficulty breathing. To try to evade pine pollen allergies, get personalized alerts about the pollen countin your area and do your best to stay indoors when pine pollen levels are high

Poplar trees typically begin to pollinate in March and continue through April. If you’re suffering from poplar tree allergy symptoms, you might experience coughing, congestion, sneezing and itchy throat, nose and eyes.

    Juniper

    Juniper trees grow most commonly in the northern US. Juniper trees produce pollen grains about 20 to 30 micrometers in size (making them barely visible to the naked eye), which is small enough to become airborne and impact allergy sufferers from miles and miles away. Symptoms from juniper tree pollen allergies can include congestion, sneezing, sore throat and even dark circles under the eyes! To help relieve some of these symptoms, keep your doors and windows closed, dust and clean more frequently, and wash bedding and clothes more often. When you do step out, wearing a mask might help too.

    Maple

    Maple trees can be found just about anywhere in the country. They’re even considered an invasive species in some parts of the US. Maple trees pollinate in February and continue through April. Unfortunately, maple tree pollen is extremely allergenic and can travel for miles, making them difficult to avoid for allergy sufferers. If allergic, you might experience symptoms like runny nose, coughing, congestion, sneezing and watery eyes. For a bit of relief, close your windows and doors. Keep your house clean and shower more frequently to ensure pollen doesn’t linger after stepping outside.

If you’re allergic to oak tree pollen, you might face allergy symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, wheezing and itchy throat, nose and eyes.

    Ragweed

    Ragweed is a weed that grows throughout the US, especially in rural areas. A single ragweed plant can create up to 1 billion pollen grains! This usually happens around August as warm weather, summer breezes and humidity help release their pollen grains. If you are allergic to ragweed, you might face allergy symptoms like sneezing, runny nose, post-nasal drip and itchiness in the eyes, nose and throat. To help keep symptoms at bay, track the pollen count in your area, stay indoors during peak levels and plan ahead when you do step out.

    Poaceae

    Poaceae (pronounced “po-see-ay”) commonly known as the grass family of flowering plants. As it’s a large family (over 12,000 species), Poaceae pollen is the leading cause of pollen allergy worldwide! If you’re allergic to Poaceae, you might experience allergy symptoms like itchy throat, runny nose, sneezing, watering eyes, blocked sinuses and headaches. To help alleviate symptoms, cover up when going out to prevent unnecessary contact and remove all outside clothing when returning indoors, but ultimately, you’ll want to try to refrain from going outside if you can avoid it.
