Are you bothered by the wattle pollen?

The team Reporter from Marlborough Express

Picton resident Barbara Speedy says wattle pollen is a "big health issue", and asked Marlborough council candidates if they'd eradicate wattle trees.

She says that the wattle population had got worse over the decades, from just a few trees to "hills of yellow".

Are the wattle trees making your hayfever worse? Do you want the council to do something about them?
