Canadian Tree Pollen Allergy Guide

Canadian Tree Pollen - Infographic

What to Know

In Canada, the largest concentration of tree pollen is released between mid-March and mid-June. Wet weather may provide some relief by clearing away pollens, but may initially exacerbate allergies by bursting pollen particles, spreading allergens farther.1
