Non-toxic way to sort out piller and post fence?

The fence is about two years old and I took it down when the really dry spell was there two week s ago. Some green is on the fence witch is a type of moss i have sanded it would it be ok to use Linseed Oil over this green stuff? Will it take ages for the Linseed Oil to dry? Dont want to use any more toxic stuff to kill the green stuff............

there is a natural wood preservative, something (E), they use it in raise beds for veg, very hard got. nothing will stop the green mould from coming back, there is stuff to kill it, but far as i know its all chemicals im afraid. fence life is a water based coating, doesnt really protect the wood but takes care of the cosmetic side of things, needs to be apply every year , no matter what it says. hope this is some help to you, i work in a big hardware (builders) jim
