There’s nothing that creepifies a place more than live oaks and Spanish moss. Live oak is a tree species whose limbs stretch out impossibly far, like serpents or gnarled grasping fingers. Spanish moss is the shaggy vegetation that drapes down from the limbs. It isn’t actually a moss. The two grow together throughout much of the coastal Southeast.
