What is the green stuff growing on my trees?


We've been having a lot of rain lately, and I just noticed the trunks of the trees in my yard have this green growing on them. Does anyone know what it is and is it harmful to the trees?

    Hi Patsy, yes, we moved to the small rural town about 8 years ago or so, and funny when I lived in the city I never saw this one trees. So, the air must be pure up here. Thank you for answering. I learned something.

    Hi Darling, Paula! What a sweet welcome back comment from you here. My hubby did me proud because he's been telling everyone how wonderful I was while he was healing LOL. I have missed everyone here and I do hope to get back to writing. Hugs

    Hi peachy, thanks for the info. Well, these are full grown trees, so not sure I could treat them all with that mixture.

    Like your answer Demas. Although I hope that the source of the question would know what a leaf would look like. Lichens are a good to have growing on your trees, but you won't find them normally in most cities or suburbs.
