Birch pollen alert!

Birch pollen. In the entire region, with the exception of the higher altitudes (>1500 m), there is currently a high to very high concentration of birch pollen. The high pollen concentration that has persisted for a week will continue over the weekend. The pollen concentration of hornbeam, which is particularly common in gardens and parks, may also reach moderate levels. In addition, oak and beech pollen levels are now also increasing.Hop, hornbeam, beech and oak pollen can trigger cross-reactions in birch pollen allergy sufferers. Only the cold and rainy spells expected for the coming week will bring relief for pollen allergy sufferers.

Hazel and alder pollen. The hazel and al der pollen season is over.

Ash pollen. We measure a moderate to high allergenic load from ash pollen. As with birch pollen, pollen allergy sufferers who are sensitive to ash pollen can expect moderate to high levels at the weekend. The pollen count is particularly high in East Tyrol.

Sycamore pollen. The concentration of plane tree pollen is increasing, especially in urban areas and in the vicinity of plane tree avenues.

Grass pollen. We have already recorded the first grass pollen in the region. This is probably due to the current warm weather, which has favored the early flowering of grasses. Concentrations are currently low.

Other pollen types. We also register pollen from spruce, larch, walnut, poplar, cypress and willow, although these are of minor allergological significance.

Pollen monitoring at higher altitudes (>1500m). A low allergy risk is currently expected at these altitudes.

Inform and prevent. The key to effectively managing allergies is to stay informed about pollen levels in the region. Follow our updates and remember to take the necessary precautions this pollen season.
