Spanish Moss - getting rid of it
My wife and I own land in Central Florida with some beautiful oaks, but I've noticed Spanish Moss starting to grow on them. While I know lots of people love the look, I'd rather not have it.
Short of picking it all off, is there something we can do to kill it or keep it out of the trees without hurting the oaks?
On another note, there is one oak on the property that is totally dead. About 50 feet high, brittle, an no leaves...not a one. I've heard Spanish Moss does not cause this. Any idea what can and are my other oaks in trouble?
