Will lichen on oak trees kill the tree? My trees are loaded with this and if harmfull, how do you get rid of it?

They won't hurt the tree. All my Live Oaks have lichen and Spanish Moss on then and they look very peaceful and southern.

Lichens are not necessarily harmful to oak trees. They can't kill your oak tree. It is normal and many trees get lichens and they survive so the tree is okay. The lichens can actually contribute to the appearance of the tree because they come in different colors so they blend in with the color of the tree.
