It grows in areas with low light, little airflow and high humidity. They are circular photosynthesizers that can be the size of a golf ball or a soccer ball. Ball moss is not a parasite like mistletoe, however.

Ball Moss Removal

ball moss removalIf it is determined that you have ball moss on your tree or trees, we would bring out our ISA Certified Arborist to take a look and see what the best course of action would be. Sometimes, you just need to remove the dead limbs with the ball moss on them. At others, you will need regular pruning maintenance to eventually get rid of all the ball moss.

Mistletoe Removal

mistletoe removalMistletoe is an evergreen parasitic plant that grows on a number of trees. This parasite absorbs both water and mineral from its host trees, weakening its branches and sometimes killing them. Heavily infested trees may be reduced in robustness, inhibited or killed, especially if they are stresses by other problems such as drought or disease.
