Remove the dead branch and spray your tree with a weak solution of vinegar and water at a mixture rate of 30/70.  Spray in the morning and make sure that you cover almost all of the tree, this mixture will kill the lichen, it will take 2 - 4 weeks to kill the infection of lichen, spray every other day for about 10 days, and watch the results.  Repeat if necessary. -Birdy

Spray with dormant oil in the fall AFTER the leaves have dropped............trim in spring and spray as early as possible with dormant oil up to when the bud the bud opens stop.........just spray the trunk.
