What type of relationship exists between the mistletoe and the tree?

    Parasitic. It’s odd to think that the cause of half the kisses around Christmas time is due in part to a parasite, but after a few years, mistletoe can kill its host plant.

    Mistletoe is a parasitic plant that lives on some species of trees. It attaches itself and takes nutrients and water from the tree that is its host. In general, the mistletoe does not kill the host tree because it needed the nutrients it provides. In some areas the mistletoe is quite large in size and seems to fill the canopy of the tree.
