thanks for the answer .
I also thought it looks
like Scale on my Lilac.
It was sprayed in early
spring (volk oil spray)
My other Shrubs have it.

Oh, I thought from your question that the branches were dying and turning white! Sorry! Oil will suffocate scale insects and they will eventually fall off. You may want to spray a second time next winter or early spring just to make sure you got the crawlers, too. Best wishes with your lilac!
