A pair of very stately willows have been removed from the south end of our local park. These willows were among the biggest I have ever seen, one was cut, one a victim of our windstorm a couple of weeks ago. It was very hard to see them lying there, as they have provided respite for so many- my son was very upset. My question is whether or not it would be viable to transplant some of the ferns that grow on their trunks? I would like to rescue some of them from the shredder, either to relocate within the park, or to grow in my garden, if a dry shady south garden would support them, or a north facing garden with dappled light. They have a good inch of substrate over the tree bark and appear to be very healthy. Thank you for any advice!
