Honey fungus

Jazz, it could have been a mis-diagnosis. Some people are ready to label any fungi HF, including some who should know better. But I wouldn't put anything expensive there for a year or two til you see what's happening

Honey fungus

After a stump grinding there won't be much left to see if there was anything  to see in the first place. 

You might find the black 'bootlaces', I think rhizomorphs might be the correct word. These are fungal growths by which the fungus moves from one plant to another. 

Can anyone identify?

They look like seedlings of a tree or shrub. How about Prunus laurocerasus to match the dead leaves in the photo?

Is my Rowan tree dead?

Also in the South East, mine is pretty much in full leaf with flower buds 

See original post

 Mine too

I fear that's dead or dying 

In the top pics the two branches to the right are dead, they have a browny look.

For future trees, branches don't like to be cut like that. Prune back to the main trunk, stumps always die back and that's where infection sets in

In the middle pic, those ridges along the twig are a sign of death, shrivelling up

 Yeah. I hope we'll see some more photos of this as it grows.
