    just wondering if anyone has any in there area.
    when i was working construction in Va., we were in an area where it was plentiful.
    there was a young kid that would climb 40-50' and get his crew members some then he would sell the rest

    During Christmas is when it is most plentiful. It grows in doorways and ceilings every where I go. I hate it because every where I go someone is trying to kiss me. I guess I'm just loveable. :D

    Hey Hillbilly, wanna come stand in my door way? :D

    It is all over the place here. How much of it do you want! Mind now, many states do not allow it being it is a parasite carried by birds from tree to tree.

    Mistletoe is a parasitic plant, generally you'll find it growing in hardwood trees.

    It has barbed leaves with white or red berries.

    The Mistletoe is the State Flower of Oklahoma.

    Grows on the old blackoaks down here. So low we can actually pick it off the tree from the road side.
