Spanish moss

Would you like to take part in our citizen science project?

STEP is becoming increasingly concerned about the potential impact of the introduced Spanish moss on our bushland and so we are trying to establish where it is and on what trees it is growing.

How you can help

Please send details of any Spanish moss you see growing on trees to Robin Buchanan (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Ideally:

  • send a geotagged photo (you may have to enable location) OR details of the location (e.g. street, park, suburb); and
  • if known, the name of the host tree (common name is fine)
