Does Moss damage asphalt on ground

Asked October 28, 2019, 9:37 PM EDT

I have a very nice shade tree, and it causes moss to appear on one side of the asphalt by it. I think the moss is attractive, and I like it. Is there any reason to remove it. Such as possible damage to the asphalt?

Moss is the PNW trademark. No, I would not worry about the asphalt at all. I agree that it looks very nice.
