I have noticed that the 45 year old Magnolia tree in my yard has either a pest or a infection on the trunk and big limbs. It looks like patches of dirt however when you scrape off a piece it feels like a moss. I have tried to scrape off has much as possible. Also the base of the trunk has peeled and cracked in one spot. What is this and what can I do about it. I don't want to lose this tree. Thanks

A soil test will help determine the problem. Here is more:
