Eastern Red Cedar
Marking the arrival of Oklahoma’s “Tree Season” is the appearance of Mountain Cedar pollen, followed later by the Eastern Red Cedar pollen. Cedar pollen can appear in staggering numbers, wreaking havoc for a large number of allergy sufferers.
When the usual cold winter weather subsides and the wind blows from the south, the pollen counters at the Oklahoma Allergy & Asthma Clinic can bet on seeing Cedar pollen. With its distinctive star shaped interior, these pollen can arrive as early as December and can stretch into April.
While the Mountain Cedar is found mostly in central and southern Texas, it can also be found in areas of northern Mexico, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Arkansas. The Eastern Red Cedar grows all over Oklahoma including Oklahoma City.
