Ball Moss Removal Sarasota, FL
Sarasota Tree Service Experts are specialists at treating and removing ball moss in Sarasota, FL. We know that Florida in general has some wild, wet and humid weather—all year round. Moss happens to love wet weather and grows everywhere the eye can see. While sometimes moss is seen as a beautiful and a wonderful addition to the curb appeal of your landscape, others see the dark side of moss, which can cause distress, sickness and death to your tree. Ball moss, specifically, can pose even more of a risk, as the moss grows within the canopy and limbs of the tree, blocking out light to the younger shoots, suffocating the tree and adding substantial weight, resulting in a slow death. Both types of moss are especially destructive to local Pecan and Citrus trees, as photosynthesis is blocked by advanced moss cover, prominent limbs break under the weight of the moss, and crop losses grow into the millions.
After years in the industry, our staff understands that moss is a common problem across our staff. Living where we do, it’s a problem that can spring up during any season. It's important to point out that ball moss can take up to 3 years to mature. Without the right tools or equipment, trying to remove the moss yourself you may end up killing the tree. We spray a single, low dose concentration of chemicals that kill the moss slowly but surely, sometimes over a period of 6 months to ensure the complete health and safety of you, your family and your trees.

When you discover ball moss on your trees, you'll want to have an action plan put into place immediately. Working with our team, we can use a combination of pruning, picking and spraying. While ball moss may not directly kill your trees, it can quickly cause the tree to take a turn for the worse. Picking out the moss can be quite time-consuming, but used in combination with spraying and pruning, it becomes effective. By spraying a copper solution on the effected plants, it is guaranteed that the moss will be killed. Both copper and potassium sprays are not harmful to children, pets, customers or anyone that comes in contact; we do suggest that you let the chemical dry before interacting with the tree once more.
To get ahead with your tree care, you should continue annual monitoring. This will ensure that ball moss hasn’t relapsed and that no other diseases are present. In combination with other diseases, ball moss can become more potent—potentially leading to even more damage. The last thing you want is to be battling multiple issues at once after you just spend time and money to remove ball moss in the first place. Luckily, our routine tree inspections can prevent this.
