Eastern Redcedar Pollen

Eastern redcedar caught on video releasing pollen. Coleta Bratten, Dewey County Conservation District, shot the video north of Taloga in Dewey County, Oklahoma, on February 26, 2009.

A group of eastern redcedar trees is captured on videotape with one in the foreground releasing white pollen into the wind as thick as smoke. More than one individual upon seeing the event mistook the pollen for smoke and notified local fire departments.
