I am curious to know if Spanish moss causes any problems for a tree.

Spanish moss is an epiphyte rather than a parasite. That is, it grows on another plant, but does not derive nutrients or water from the other plant. It is just using the plant as a support to grow on. Consider it as a decorative addition and not a threat to your trees.
