RE: fungus on branches?

Questions for you:

1. Can you easily lift the white stuff off the branch with a thumbnail? If so, likely a wax scale (insect); remove all and watch for more.

2. Is the white stuff stuck to the wood and appear to come out of the branch? If so, likely the white is a fungus that is growing from wood which was already dead.

yes, they easily come off. and no those brencheres are not dead .
