Whether landscape friend or foe, mistletoe remains a holiday staple

-A A +A

 

By Sam Marshall

 

Mistletoe is a common sight this time of year in deciduous trees throughout coastal North Carolina. A parasite of many hardwood trees, mistletoe can also be blamed for the increase in stolen kisses from December through the first of January. While it has had many uses throughout history, this evergreen plant is usually considered to be an unsightly, unwanted and potentially harmful addition to the landscape. That said, there are a few factors to consider before deciding whether this is a friend or foe to your landscape trees.
