I have these fuzzy patches on my October Glory Maple tree. Not sure if this is normal or a disease.

    It looks to be just the start of the formation of patches of lichen. Nothing too much to worry about, but if you want to get rid of it try a sulfur-based fungicide.

    Grab the chainsaw!
    Whoa, just kidding! Looks like lichen. Here is an interesting link on Walter’s site http://www.walterreeves.com/landscaping/lichen-quiz/
    Follow his links for more info and photo and breathe easy there in lake country.
