Seasons and Regions
Where are Mountain Cedar trees found?
Mountain cedars are native to North America but can be found all over the Northern Hemisphere. They thrive in high altitude regions and can be found in Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Mountain Cedar pollen is the culprit behind the unwelcome mid-winter “cedar fever.”
Avoid the allergen as best as you can and reduce symptoms through over-the-counter medications. If you would like to prevent your allergies from progressing or are looking for long-term relief, talk to your doctor about allergy immunotherapy or find out if you are eligible for NectarRx Allergy Treatment.
