NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A Rutgers University researcher predicts a bad pollen season is about to hit allergy sufferers.

Doctor Leonard Bielory (Bee-ELL’-oh-ree) says the tree season that started late due to the overbearing winter is about to release one of the strongest birch and oak pollen seasons in recent memory.

He says the spring allergy season, caused primarily by tree pollination, typically begins in late February or early March.

But this year, it did not really start until early April.

The birch tree pollen season has just started and is expected to be followed by one of the strongest oak pollen seasons.

Bielory says that could affect even mild sufferers during the first few weeks of May.
