On my trip from South Carolina to Goergia, Spanish moss is INVASIVE. It is everywhere on the southern live oak, the swamp cypress, the brushes …
It is neither Spanish, nor Moss.
It needs HEIGHT, so it borrows the arms of trees to hang on.
But it is NOT a parasite.
It lives where humid air exists - It is the VISUAL MANIFESTATION of air.
It travels with wind and birds. Thus it is FLOATING and FLYING.
