Medium_tree Our trees/bushes have white growths on the stems/branches that are spreading quickly throughout the garden.

They are about 0.5cm in diameter and there are lots of them on all the bushes and trees. They appear to have spread to nearly all the trees in the garden very quickly. Thanks for your help.

Kind regards
