Stop Sniffling with Tree Allergy Treatments by New York City’s Dr. Shukla

Treating Tree Allergies in New York

The streets of New York City are lined with trees, providing shade and natural beauty in our otherwise urban landscape. But when the weather turns warm, dry, and windy, these trees can wreak havoc on allergy sufferers in every borough. This is because of the pollen that can be found in every plant, some of which trigger unwanted immune system responses in individuals with allergies.

Treating Tree Allergies in New York City

Tree allergies are a common type of seasonal allergy, meaning they tend to strike only during certain times of the year. In New York, seasonal allergies are most prevalent during the spring and summer months. Following particularly wet winters, trees throughout the city thrive. When the weather becomes warmer, these trees begin to release their pollen into the air, triggering allergies for many people.

Types of Tree Allergies

Tree pollen accounts for approximately 15 percent of spring allergies. Only about 65 species of tree in all of North America have been shown to cause allergies. There is usually no cross-reaction between different kinds of tree pollens; in most cases, a specific species’ pollen causing your symptoms. Occasionally, there is cross-reaction with certain raw fruits, which may cause itching in the mouth or throat. Male trees produce the pollen and are frequently favored by arborists because they shed no seeds or seedpods. There are several species that always shed allergenic pollen and can be found on New York City streets.
