The pine pollen season usually lasts about 2-3 weeks but that is very dependent weather conditions. Dry conditions and warm temperatures are needed for the trees to begin producing the pollen but periods of rain will keep the pollen from being distributed as far by the wind. Since trees respond to weather conditions, a hard winter (like we had this last year) can cause pines to produce more pollen especially if we have the right conditions in spring. Hope that helps!
