Don't worry about it, could be any number of mosses, including an
interesting specimen that eventually looks a little like a fern.  Should
be no problem other than the unusually wet year we have been having.

Set back, enjoy your trees, enjoy your Gnats, then come to deep east
Texas and see what real fungus looks like.  (Little green men are not
from Mars, they are from the Big Thicket in east Texas, where everything
that doesn't stick, bite, poison or feed on you, turns green. I just
love the sub-tropics)
