FUNGI ON APPLE TREES
Middlesex, United Kingdom
Hopefully someone can give me some advice. I have a number of very old apple and pear trees in my garden. One of the apple trees (the only eating apple I have) has had a number of branches on one side of the tree die back. In the spring/summer it grows a large fungus on one side near the base.
I have cut it back quite drastically to approx 1/3rd of it`s height, but I`m concerned that the fungus will probably kill it.
Is this treatable, if so, what do I treat it with and how is this done.
