    Moss usually grows in excess shade, try pruning back some of the branches for help!

      Reply to Hillela G....Thanks for your suggestion! We live in the Pacific Northwest, so there is a lot of "shade" for many months even though it gets full sun in the warmer seasons. I told my husband we should prune, too!

    Moss or a vine

      Another reader suggested pruning. A hard pruning may be the only solution. The tree looks awful this year. The moss is that gray stuff.
