  1. Well thank you so much for doing the research and finding this. I have now read three articles on lichen, and have discovered they are NOT killing that poor tree. The lichen don't feed off the tree, but feed themselves. Amazing. You are making me learn at such an old age! lol This was really interesting. I will have to correct my blog so as not to falsely accuse the innocent!
