Some trees carry so much pollen that they appear to explode into a cloud when given just a gentle shake. The results are so impressive you may doubt what you see.
This video was taken in Lewisburg Tennessee and just in case you’re wondering what you’re watching there’s a helpful woman on the audio there to repeat “Pollen, pollen,” for you.

What do you think? Impressive? Scary?
Is there a risk that by shaking the tree we’re interfering and causing the pollen to fly off prematurely or is it simply the case that once a tree is as heavy as this then the pollen is ready to go?
