I dont know if thats honey fungus. But be careful if you have a dead Cherry tree as they are prone to Honey fungus.
I had a lovely old cherry tree but I suspected it had HF as the privet hedge next to it was dying off gradually each year. I didnt want to lose my hedge do I dug out the tree along with the dying hedge and replaced the soil, and planted new hedging.
The traditional product for killing off HF is no longer sold as such, but it has now ben relabled and sold as patio cleaner. Think it was called Armillatox, though Jayes Fluid is supposed to treat it as well.
