We have two very much loved mature apple trees in our garden which have apparently become affected by honey fungus. We understand there is no treatment and we must remove the trees without delay or the diseas could spread throughout the garden.
Can you confirm this is the case or do you think we could risk leaving the trees in situ and just 'see what happens'?
if removal is necessary, could you suggest a mature tree/s we could put in their place so as not to be left with a horrible gap in our garden 'landscape'. It is a town garden of approx 100ft long by 50ft wide. The trees were approx 20 and 25ft high with girth cirumferences of 2ft and 2ft 6". Thank you so much.
