HIXON, Tenn. -- Tree trimmers in Hixson, Tennessee, stirred up an allergy-sufferer's nightmare.

Timberline Outdoors called it a "pollen bomb."

"If you think your allergies are trying to kill you, you'd be right!" Timberline Outdoors wrote on Facebook.

Last year, a backhoe loader struck a tree creating a "pollen bomb" in Millville, New Jersey.
