Best Low Pollen Trees

Spring is always an exciting time of year when the weather gets warmer and flowers begin to bloom. However, pollen from the trees can cause your allergies to start acting up. If you have allergies, it is important to know what trees to avoid planting. Knowing which trees to plant can help you have a more comfortable spring season.

What Trees Cause Allergic Reactions? 

Tree allergies are often known as fever allergies. The pollen is released from the tree into your body. Your immune system recognizes the pollen as an intruder. The most common side effects from allergies are running nose, itchy eyes, nose and ears, and sneezing.

There are trees worse for allergies than others. The most common are:

  • Ash
  • Birch
  • Boxelder
  • Cedar
  • Cottonwood
  • Elm
  • Hawthorn
  • Maple
  • Oak
  • Pine
  • Sycamore
  • Walnut
  • Willow

Specific trees cause less allergic reaction because they do not release pollen. The following trees are some of the best trees to plant if you have a pollen allergy:

  • Crape Myrtle
  • Flowering Crabapple
  • Flowering Plum
  • Dogwood
  • Magnolia
  • Tulip
