    spanish moss, magnolia tree, and the ‘ball’ is the flower/seed thingy

  5. A 150ft tall Magnolia? Those don’t look like Magnolia buds either. I don’t know what it is but I don’t think it’s a Magnolia.

    That is a magnolia tree with spanish moss. Spanish moss usually has red bugs, chiggers(at least in FL) in it so you don’t want to hang under it or put it on you. It was used in bedding in the 1700’s thus “don’t let the bed bugs bite”.

    Man I love your videos. It’s your grandson’s birthday, the kids are tucking into burgers and you’re there in camo gear on point duty eating bark. You sir are a legend.

    old Mans Beard!!! /spanish moss

  9. it’s a magnolia tree with spanish moss in it. Why he wouldn’t want to touch the white “ball”, I have no idea. We had magnolia tree’s growing in our front yard as a kid and we used to climb them and play in it all the time touching the white “balls”. never did us or them any harm

    Poor Bear Grills. Usnea (old Mans Beard) is much smaller and grows in boreal forests, like here in Maine. I remember that as spanish moss from the bur ride in to Parris Island, SC. The tree looks like a laurel, but we have nothing like it here. Going with Magnolia as well. Even though I don’t yet know what osage orange looks like to rule it out.

    Some of these videos are for people that have never stepped foot off of a sidewalk. To me and you, this is no big deal. But some people are not as lucky as us.

    Magnolia is a tree that grows in the southern part of the USA and likes areas with lots of water.
