The white cottony substance can be seen floating through town, clinging to entryway rugs and collecting in tufts along the grassy edge of the sidewalk.

According to Riveredge Nature Center in Newburg the cottony-covered seed is a reproductive part of the female cottonwood tree.

The cottonwood seeding process normally happens in late May through June. Heavy rains may also have led to the increase in seeds.
