Hi everyone , I have a laburnum of about 40 years old which has developed what I believe to be Honeydew fungus around the base and about 6 ft up the trunk to the apex of the branches . Is there anything I can do ? Also have a flowering Cherry that has developed a small pink bracket type fungus along its branches , feels a bit leathery . Is there anything I can do here ? I also have an apple tree that has a wooly appearing mold / fungus which exudes sap when touched . I had another with the same problem which died. Can anyone give hope to this sad gardener ?
I fear the two trees with the fungi are rotten inside and doomed, Fungi grow on rotting wood. The laburnum may well have honey fungus, a photo would confirm.
is the fungus black? any insects hanging around? Mainly around roots?
Thanks for replying everyone . Much Appreciated. Attaching photo's of the enemy

Hope this helps to ID what I am dealing with.
