How to Help

Did you know some trees are prohibited in Albuquerque in order to control allergy-producing pollen.

See a list of restricted trees.

If you're landscaping or planning a garden, choose to plant low-pollen trees.

The beautiful trees and plants around Albuquerque can cause problems for people sensitive to the pollen they produce.
