I was also wondering what this white fungus stuff on our trees is. So far only about five of our trees have this, one of which is a cherry the others are apple trees.Thanks of the help, Joshua

It appears to be white mold growing on dead wood. This can be caused by leaving winter protection on trees not allowing bark to dry.
