Poplar fluff, heat, June. It looks like a terrible dream of an allergy sufferer in Moscow

From the very beginning of June, all my friends and colleagues have been complaining about the poplar storm.

Pooh is everywhere. In a mug with fresh coffee, in the corners of the room when cleaning, on clothes, in a backpack, under a laptop, and even in the nose. Special disgusting when in the nose.

So you knew what really there is no allergy to poplar fluff? It only carries pollen and other irritants that cause runny nose, redness, itchy eyes and endless sneezing.

But it doesn’t get any easier. It would seem that three weeks have passed, but the seeds are not going to disappear.

The photos below were taken on an iPhone 12 Pro Max (from 109,990 rubles). I remind you about our review.

How Moscow was covered with summer snow


The heat and fluff will drive anyone crazy at once. Golden hour, approximation 2.5x


In the courtyards of the university dormitory there are real drifts of fluff. The main thing is not to set fire


But some schoolchildren still take risks


Such arsonists are restless for some really fragile nature trails.


If a fire is made here, the whole forest hollow could burn


Some days you can’t hide from fluff, it’s everywhere

In some areas, poplars are extremely abundant, and their seeds “dispersed” to other territories


Playgrounds are covered with poplar carpet


Sports grounds too

Walking the dogs has become more difficult


But the garbage is less visible


Most of the fluff is blown out under the elements of the city’s infrastructure. Allergy sufferers have nothing to do there. Time 21:51, approximation 2.5x y iPhone 12 Pro Max did great

There were no poplars in Moscow, but without them it would be worse

The city began to be planted with these annoying plants in the mid-1900s to reduce the harm from rising carbon emissions from the industrial revolution.

The fact is that poplar survives better than other crap in extreme climates, where the temperature amplitude diverges from -30ºC to +35ºC.

At the same time, the tree produces more oxygen than other species, and thereby compensates for the growing level of air pollution. Given the scale of the seating, blind felling of poplar will be an ecological disaster for the city.

There are two ways out

Poplar – dioecious plant, that is, the whole tree will have flowers of only one of the sexes. Only buds female trees spread fluff.

But we’re not going to cut down half of all the trees, are we?

there is life hack… Poplar changes sex to male and produces infertile flowers if its branches are severely pruned, that is, to create sufficient stress for the tree.

The only difficulty here is that, due to bad weather, it can accidentally happen to the “male” individual, which then turns into a breeding ground of fluff. That is, the method will not work 100%.

therefore the most productive way to save Muscovites from the main reason not to love summer will be the gradual replacement of poplars of the current species with others that do not bloom. For example, Chinese, Berlin or White.

In the meantime, don’t forget to drink antihistamines. Do not hesitate and ask them at pharmacies. There is a high probability that you will be offered a pill with understanding, thanks to which after 20 minutes you will stop sneezing and breathe freely again.
