I doubt very much whether the council involved will start cutting down park trees because one woman is over-protective.

I don't understand why nut allergies are on the increase.
My understanding is that a rather simple explanation is a heightened response to non-threatening environmental substances due to less frequently encountered environmental pathogens in this age of hygeine and cleanliness.

So instead of being tuned to bacteria and that, the immune response becomes overactive to other allergens.
