Drywall patching

I'm about to patch an area with drywall, but it will butt against the wooden staircase.
Can I tape and mud the joint between the drywall and wood - will the mud stick to the wood?

Usually an area like that gets flat taped and finished. Once the drywall finishing is done and primed you caulk where the drywall meets the wood. The j/c doesn't adhere well enough to wood to tape and mud onto the wood. Is it feasible to add a molding to hide the gap?

I'm trying to avoid using molding as I'm looking for a flush finish with the staircase.

Then you'll need to flat tape, clean the mud off of the wood and caulk it after the wall is primed.
