My neighbors have a giant cottonwood tree in their backyard, it's trunk is at least 4 foot in diameter (1 1/3 meter for metric folk). The cottonwood seeds were comming down like snow flurries in my alley today.

I've never seen poplar fluff before so I can't say.

Edit: after a bit of research it looks like Black Poplars in Siberia and Cottonwoods in North America are very closely related so it is probably the same thing.

God forbid, otherwise we'd be on the brink of a major public allergy disaster

OK!
One time poplars were really popular trees in our cities, because of its unpretentiousness. But now city municipalities cut the crones or even chop down the trees to minimize fluff in the air.

I don't think very many people are allergic to cottonwoods so maybe that makes a difference. Most people I know seem to like the fluff. Also, they are indigenous to the area so it would be almost impossible to get rid of them, they are everywhere.

Thanks for the map. I wouldn't have guessed that it went inland from the river instead of following it.

I took some more photos today. Same general area as a last week.

These first shots are also buildings I photoed last week. The lighting was different, I wanted to see what impact that had.
