Dendryolycopodium dendroideum is a relatively abundant tree clubmoss species in northeastern North American forests. It can be distinguished from the other two Dendrolycopodium species in the area by its spreading leaves on the main shoot below the first branches. This species often forms large colonies by spreading rhizomes. It is particularly common in acidic woods, especially at middle and higher elevations in the region.
