Spanish Moss Plants
Q.

Removal or thinning of spanish moss

Zone Minneola, FL 34715 | tzbaker added on July 27, 2016 | Answered

Most articles say that it needs to be removed by hand or an arborist. However, is it possible to construct a spring loaded opposing claw on a long pole to grab and remove the moss from higher up in a tree? The claws would be operated with a rope at the lower end of the pole.

I have heard of homeowners connecting a rake to a long pole and bringing down the Spanish Moss.

It sounds like a great invention you have thought up!
