Hi Mr Mustard
I licve with HF, 2 large willows died of it within a year and root removal was never a possiblity. I have lost a couple of clematis in the area, maybe down to HF, who knows?
But an ash is growing healthily from the base of one stmp and a large hebe, a Sorbus hupehensis and several others are OK nearby. The ceanothus I think may be affected. It's part of life in a woodland as you say. Not the end of the world.
