Exposure to birch pollen, first grass pollen is in the air!

The high temperatures of the last week have greatly encouraged plants to flower, with many plants flowering at the same time and earlier than the long-term average.

In the northern parts of the country, the peak of the birch blossom has passed, but the pollen levels are still high, especially as the pollen grains are repeatedly stirred up by the wind. In the lowlands, ash and hornbeam are now being replaced by copper beech and oak. In residential areas, walnut and black locust are beginning to flower and spruce is also about to start flowering.
In the lowlands of the Flachgau and Tennengau, the first grass species are ready to flower and can already cause discomfort in sensitive people.
The blossoming of various fruit trees is harmless for allergy sufferers.

The pollen count is still somewhat lower in the mountain regions, where the peak of the birch blossom is still to come. Exposure to ash is low. In the lowlands along the Salzach Valley, the first grasses are also ready to bloom.
The total pollen load is lowest in Lungau, where there is hardly any exposure for sensitive people.

Also in the pollen spectrum: pollen from juniper, willow, maple, elm and larch.
