I have two trees that have mistletoe, one in my front yard and one in my back yard. Are these problematic to the rest of the trees in my yard?
Mistletoe is a parasite to trees, meaning it steals water and nutrients from its host. Mistletoe can cause crown decline, dieback, and even death. The damage is generally related to the degree of infestation and it is best removed via pruning when possible and if not detrimental to the remaining plant.
