Pollen report: Flowering of birch continues across Finland
Those persons who are allergic to birch pollen are now likely to be experiencing symptoms across Finland.
The flowering of birch is continuing in southern and central parts of the country, while it has also begun in the warmer growing-areas of Northern Ostrobothnia.
According to a pollen report released by the Aerobiology Unit of the University of Turku, pollen counts for birch are high in the southern and central parts of the country.
Slight amounts of pollen can also be carried over to Lapland by the wind, while the airborne pollen counts in the area remain low.
The flowering of alder has come to an end in central parts of Finland, but in the northern parts of the country except for Northern Lapland the flowering is continuing.
Currently, the airborne pollen counts for alder are varying from ”low” to ”moderate”.
