Ginkgo bonsai and moss
I just acquired a bonsai Ginkgo tree about 25 yrs old perhaps.. it seems to have been heavily pruned to keep it short... and has moss on its trunk and branches... especially where it has been pruned. Although I seal the wounds.
Usually in Seattle, moss grows on everything, and is thought to be harmless. Does anyone care to comment on whether it is harming the tree? I have taken to removing it with a toothbrush, but really dont want to scrub too much. I would leave it, if it is not harmful.
