There's HF in my garden. I've lost a few things, will probably lose more but there' are plenty of things totally unaffected, including an ash, about 10 years old, growing from the stump of a willow that died from HF.
Go for strong growers suited to the soil and aspect rather than anything temperamental. There's HF in most woodland but all the trees aren't dead. It's part of woodland life.
