Brandon Tree Trimmers Sabal Palmetto

Just as there is disagreement over what's a wildflower and what's a weed, Florida's native bromeliads, Spanish moss and Ball moss, seem to be loved or hated. Since these plants are native, they are a natural part of our ecosystem, just as are the giant Live Oaks and Laurel Oaks that so frequently host them. These plants have been living together since before we came around!

I mentioned love and hate because some see these plants as an attractive addition to their oaks while others find it unsightly, an eyesore, and would do just about anything to remove it.

It isn't parasitic, like mistletoe. It is an epiphyte, or air plant, taking nothing from the host.

The growth of epiphytes on healthy trees will be limited by the shade that the tree canopy casts, leaving less light available for photosynthesis.

A tree in decline might experience overgrowth that needs to be thinned, allowing the host tree an opportunity to recover.

Bromeliad epiphyte removal for pure aesthetics is discouraged. The process of removal can damage the tree.

In those uncommon instances where Spanish moss removal is the right choice, Mid Florida Tree Service will clear out just enough Spanish moss, but will limit this work to preserve the overall health of the tree. There are moss spraying options, but the price is high, the process slow, and the moss leaves a mess on your lawn.
