Can't really tell what's on the trunk, not close or clear enough but its probably lichen, doesn't do any harm, is often present on older trees. If you don't like it, wash it off with horticultural soap and water.

No, don't wash it off, it is a natural and interesting feature of the tree. Sorry Bamboo. It shows that you have good, clean air.
