Thanks a lot for the info! I was suspecting a type of moss but it has thrown me because it looks like cedar close up. Much appreciated!

Nice detail. I love this stuff! It propagates by spores, I think. Also, I am under the impression that it's been around for millions of years and forms the base of what has been fossilized and metamorphosed into the coal we're now using.
