When I was a kid growing up in Montgomery Co Tn we would hunt Mistletoe around Christmas and shoot it out of the tree with a 22 rifle. You had to do a lot of searching in the woods to find it. This winter there is Mistletoe everywhere. you can look along the tree line on top of a bluff and see trees covered with it. Have any of the rest of you seen this type of increase in the amount of Mistletoe?

Can be a good food source for birds but also can ruin your timber stand.

When I was in high school some friends and I made "simulated mistletoe" in the chemistry lab. We were able to put it to good use too as I recall.

It is a parasite. Like all parasites, it attracts things in stress.
