Atlanta has worst Pollen count nationally?

Someone was telling me Atlanta is home to the worst pollen count in the US. Is this true? I couldn’t find out where statistics were compared through google or but I’m rather curious.


I have heard that before but have no cite.

Here is a graph showing Atlanta pollen counts for the last few years, if that helps any.

Any pollen count over 120 is considered “extremely high”. Today’s pollen count is 4777. :rolleyes:

Pollen counts from the Atlanta Allergy Clinic

IIRC, the pollen count went over 8000 one day a few years back.

The price we pay, I suppose, for being “The City in a Forest.”
