 "God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools." ~John Muir

Dear Frankie,

Yes, allergies are horrible. I suggest that you visit your doctor to see what solution he can find.

However, trees do cleanse the air so that you are breathing less polluted air. Also, they reduce energy bills by as much as 20%.

Sometimes, you have to take the good with the bad. I live on a tree-lined street and my car isn't covered with pollen. It depends on the type of tree that is planted.

The city is now planting a variety of trees. Perhaps, one day you will find a tree that doesn't make you sneeze, and I promise that living near it will make you healthier!

Just what we need. Drive up and down the street in Middle Village. Look at each car. They are covered with so much pollen you can't see out the windows to drive.

Between con ed, gas company, breaking up sidewalks its like Brooklyn in the 1950's . Lots of noise and what a mess.

Yes more trees, and more garbage pails for the park so they stop dropping bottles and garbage all over peoples property.

Have a great day.
