Cherry honey fungus

shirley cowan asked 10 years ago

I had a cherry tree cut down some years ago but the base and roots were left in ground. I now discover that there is honey fungus creeping around the base. It is beside both my compost heap and some evergreen shrubs. Should I be worried? What is the best solution.

Honey fungus breaks down dead tree stumps …so it is part of the natural process and might or might not affect neighbouring living shrubs and trees.

This is common but it is not certain.

In any case, there is nothing that can be done to stop this happening, if it does at all.
