What is this growing in my Fat Albert Blue spruce? How do I get rid of it? Will it kill my tree?

Hello. That is called lichens and it will not harm you tree nor do you have to treat it. If you notice in the landscape, this grows everywhere. If you do a google search for lichens you'll find more information on it.
