Answer: Apple trees often play host to various mosses and lichens. These are harmless, but not very attractive. You can kill the mosses and lichens with a lime-sulfur (Bordeaux) spray, which will also protect your apple tree from scab disease. Applications of lime-sulfur are made during the dormant season (now), and repeated at specific intervals. Check the product label and spray according to label directions.
