I noticed the amount of moss growing on the roots and trunks of the back pine. What is your opinion of this?
Jonas Dupuich says
Hi Carolee – it’s not desirable to have moss growing on pine bark or roots as the additional moisture can hasten the deterioration of the bark. Once it’s there, it can be hard to remove. Some of my trees have it too – it can be hard to keep the moss at bay, especially at this time of year as moss growth accelerates in the Bay Area.
