Trees are the number one carriers of pollen in Connecticut, especially on a windy day when pollen attached to high-up leaves and branches blows onto clothing and skin. Oak, Ash, Elm, Maple, and Birch trees are all trees to look out for in parks, backyards, or nature walks if you suffer from seasonal allergies. According to Fairfield County Allergy, Asthma & Immunology Association, it's important to treat allergies before the Spring season begins.
