Honey fungus

Posted: 16/10/2013 at 10:03

We had a large weeping willow in the garden and over the past two years the foliage had got thinner so having taken advice from a tree surgeon had the tree cut back. During early autumn last year honey fungus appeared at the base of the  willow. This year we had some early foliage which quickly died.

 

Over this past weekend the fungus had appeared again much more this time including throu the bark. Obiously the tree is now dead. My questions are whether we should now cut down and remove the tree and understand that we cannot replant similar species in the same site. Could we just cut  it to a stump and place clematis and climbing roses over it?How can we get rid of the fungus which is now coming up thro the lawn as well?

several willows in our area have died suddenly altho not necessarily from honey fungus. Any advice would be appreciated.
