(NBC) - Holy smoke!

Video showing a plume of pollen is "exploding" online.

A man in New Jersey wanted to show just how problematic the pollen is this year in the Garden State.

 

So, he drove a backhoe into a tree at work, capturing a massive amount of pollen shooting into the air.

According to the Asthma and Allergy foundation of America, allergic reactions to pollen from trees, grasses and weeds affects more than six million children and 20 million adults nationwide.
