I have 3 or 4 kinds of moss growing all over my fruit trees of every kind. Is there a safe way to remove it? I live in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.

moss is quite common on trees in the PNW
it does not have a root system so i just hose it off when it gets too heavy
a strong water spray will knock it off

Just returning from a road trip down south through Cali to Mexico, up through the canyon lands. Finding I miss the moss and ferns almost as much as actual trees.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
