Hi Barbara,

Without more info on what you see happening with the leaves and limbs it would be difficult to say what is the cause. This site is in the US but should be helpful.

Lichens on a tree are not an indicator of disease or pests. Lichen is harmless to the tree and feeds wildlife. In North, Central and South America hummingbirds use it in nest building. Other birds do so as well and many beneficial insects and mammals eat lichen.
