With more than 250 public parks, gardens and ancient woodlands dotted throughout the city, the tree pollen count for Sheffield can be quite high. In fact, it’s estimated that there are more than 4.5 million trees within the city – that’s more trees per person than any other European city.

You’ll find a whole host of different species, from towering sessile oaks to common silver birch. While this might make Sheffield one of the greenest cities in the UK, species like the silver birch can cause some serious sniffles for hay fever sufferers – especially in April and May.

Around a third of Sheffield also sits within the Peak District National Park, so you can expect the pollen levels to be high in this area too.
