There are many trees and shrubs that are resistant to honey fungus - the RHS has a list of them here, together with a list of the most susceptible  http://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/pdfs/honey-fungus-host-list-march-2014 

Hope that's helpful

Ooooooooo, some hard hearts there!

Its meant to be emotional.  It doesn't mean the viewers have to sob their eyes out.  

For me,  a deserving family  gets something done for them that maybe is over the top a little but gives so much pleasure to them.  

It's not a garden programme really but when was the last time GW inspired anything?  

Not hard hearted at all Verdun - very soft hearted indeed - but I do feel uncomfortable at what feels (to me) like the mawkish exploitation of others' misfortune for commercial gain.  I'm not saying that these people shouldn't have lovely gardens made for them - I just feel it's wrong that only those that are 'suitable for television' will ever get what they truly need.  

I've seen so many instances of families who have a real need for an accessible garden which would really contribute to the well-being of a disabled or ill family member, as well as for their family carers - however, they wouldn't make a good television story so there's no chance ....
