Moss on Trees

Its considered bad form to display your bonsai with moss on the trunk. Attempts to remove the moss almost always results in precious old bark being dislodged. I live in the cold wet north of the UK and moss on trees is inevitable, these photos are from near where I live – so if we are to present our bonsai as true to the region we live should I have moss on my trees, what do you think?

  1. With the following caveat: When done artistically and logically as when portraying a tree overhanging a river. However, moss can destroy the illusion of size and perspective so I would be very cautious keeping moss on smaller size bonsai.
