Lychee tree seems to have fungus on the trunk. What should I do?

The white spots on the trunk of lychee trees will not harm the growth of the lychee tree.

White spots resembling fungus or mold are frequently observed on the trunks of lychee trees, which is a common phenomenon. However, it is important to note that this occurrence does not have any detrimental effects on the growth of the tree.

Lychee trees are typically propagated using the Air Layering Method, which can result in the development of thicker trunks on the young trees derived from the mother branch. Interestingly, we have observed that the younger trunks generally do not exhibit the presence of these white spots. Instead, it is more common to see such spots on the trees with thicker trunks.
