The paper discusses the extent of pollen production and variability in pollen morphology of Holoptelea integrifolia. Referring to the high incidence of its pollen in the atmosphere and its high allergenicity, the authors suggest that the practice of planting the trees of Holoptelea as graceful shade trees should be discontinued.
