This pale green moss like growth is all over the trunk and branches of the tree. There is also some vertical cracks in the trunk. Can you identify the growth and is there some treatment. I would hate to loose the tree.

    Check my website notes on lichens
    But I noticed the vertical cracks in the bark, which indicate the tree might have been planted too deeply

    Also check my website notes on trees planted too deep

    Thank you. I will check the website notes. Tree planted by builder. I am lucky it is alive at all.
