how do i treat lichen on magnolia



You don't need to, its' not harmful, but if you don't like the look of it, gently clean it off.

Why do you want to treat it? Lichen is a sign of clean air and does no harm to the plant. However, it could be a sign that the canopy is not thick enough and the tree isn't growing very strongly. Feed it with an ericaceous plant food.
