White stuff

Asked April 2, 2019, 2:58 PM EDT

What is this white stuff on my weeping cherry tree? Do I need to remove the branch? Thanks.

The limb has died or is close to dead and the white is a decay fungus on this branch. The fungus is not killing the branch it attacks a branch that is already dead. Yes remove this branch back to live healthy stems.
