Allergies in New England

Allergies.

Allergies to tree pollen begin later in New England than in most other areas, but when it begins, it comes on fast, according to allergists familiar with this area.

“When the tree season comes on, patients go from feeling normal to just being miserable,” said Dr. Don McNeil, who specializes in allergy and immunology. 

The spring allergy season is short—just six to eight weeks—but it can make allergy sufferers highly uncomfortable.

McNeil says this is heightened by the fact that many people with pollen allergies also have mold allergies.

The moist, warm weather that marks spring also encourages mold growth, which means mold spores are on the rise at the same time as tree pollen.

The tree pollen that causes related spring allergies can only arise from trees that pollinate: deciduous trees. These are the oaks, hickories, sycamores, cottonwoods, birches and other hardwoods that are prevalent in the Northeast.
