Hi everyone. My eastern white pine has had this grassy/mossy looking substance growing on it for years and it seems to be very hard to get rid of.
I don’t really think that it’s moss because when I pull it off, there are deep roots attached.
I’ve tried pulling them all out and it always seems to come back with time.
Does anyone know:
- what this substance is? Species?
- how to get rid of it without harming the tree?
Here’s a photo.
