A product called "Surround" can leave trees looking white although I think it might be a little early for that. My understanding (I do not use it myself) is that it is used to protect fruit from insect damage organically.

While driving on the highway near Wenatchee, Washington (a great
fruit-growing area) this weekend we noticed field after field of pure
white fruit trees, in addition to an occasional field of the usual
I thought it might be some sort of early spring spray, but others
suggested it might be a variety or varieties with white bark. Every
bit of the tree was white - trunk and all of the branches, giving the
fields a rather ghostly appearance.
Any idea what this might be? By the way, it was a beautiful sunny
day, with no rain to wash off anything that might have been sprayed.
